Food Matters Live: Tastes of Better event series is launching in London on 14 March 2023 at the Kia Oval, with more dates to follow in May in Manchester and then back in the capital in October.

The Tastes of Better event series aims to tackle some of the food innovation challenges that manufacturers and companies are facing in the current climate, and to help them meet their goals and business targets. The events will bring together a VIP-only audience at the core of food and nutrition innovation – from product developers, R&D and technical teams, and development chefs, to dietitians, nutritionists, brand leads and marketing professionals from across manufacturing, retail and foodservice.
