 How can we make changes to reduce the “globesity” epidemic?

Live Webcast: Reducing obesity: policy and practice

The need to reduce obesity is rarely out of the headlines, and paradoxically coexisting with undernutrition, is an escalating global epidemic of obesity – “globesity”. In developing countries, it is estimated that over 115 million people suffer from obesity-related problems. New regulations on TV advertising on HFSS ad campaigns, the NHS’s Better Health campaign and Henry Dimbleby’s National Food Strategy are just some of the latest initiatives underpinning the need for urgent action. Join the latest series of these specialist webcasts as the expert speakers explore the policy, reforms and latest guidance aiming to reduce obesity, while also sharing what strategies actually work in practice.

 Can we have more sustainable supply chains?

Live Webcast: Sustainable food futures

The new technologies disrupting food production are creating a catalyst for innovation, as well as providing solutions to some of the world’s biggest food challenges. From plant based to lab-grown, there are innovative ways of building sustainable supply chains, onshore vertical farming, novel foods, to the latest regulation and more. All may impact and reduce our global footprint for the better. In this series of live webcasts, delivered by an international cast of speakers, we will explore the future of global food production and what it means for sustainable food innovation.



What lies ahead for retail trends in 2022?

Live Webcast: Retail trend and consumer connections

Are you looking for the latest innovations in ingredients?

Hosted by a panel of expert buyers, they explore ingredients specialising in the better-for-you, sustainable, healthy, functional, and plant-based categories. Join these knowledgeable experts, as they hear from the people behind the ingredients and ask how these solutions can overcome new product development and reformulation challenges.
