about us

Welcome to Food Matters Live


Our aim is simple but ambitious – to inspire a better future for food by stimulating industry innovation, technology and people. Although that’s a tall order, we know we can be a catalyst for making change happen. We’ve been doing it since 2014.

We’re delighted that Food Matters Live continues to be an ever-growing community of people working in sustainable food innovation, nutrition and health from all over the world.

At the same time, Food Tech Matters has become an important catalyst for start-ups and entrepreneurs to link up with investors and industry, and to accelerate great ideas in food-tech.

And in keeping with our view that whilst the challenge is about our food system, it’s people who will solve it, Food Matters Careers provides all-important opportunities for industry, academia and aspiring young people to connect, and build exciting careers within this dynamic and important sector. 

Whether you’re already a part of our community or you’re discovering us for the first time, we hope you find what we do engaging and inspiring.

What we do

We provide high quality information and learning, through podcasts, videos, written features and articles, masterclasses, and a suite of newsletters. And we connect people online – through programmes of group and one-to-one meetings.

Our family of brands helps us focus on our key themes – innovation, technology and people – and the connections between them.

And whilst the challenge of delivering sustainable food systems and nutritious food for everyone is enormous, we’re acutely aware that food and drink are part of who we are. At their best, they bind families and societies, and give us identity, purpose, and joy. Food is necessary for the soul, and we celebrate it enthusiastically.

Of course people are the key to a sustainable food future, so naturally people take centre stage in everything we do. From helping to guide aspiring young people to championing the innovators helping make change happen, we highlight inspiring people with insight, ideas and passion.
