What previous partners think

"The Food Matters Live format has significantly improved our ability to engage with an audience. Unlike trade shows, we can showcase our key benefits and unique selling points in a tailored environment, complete with our own kitchen for developing specific menus. This allows us to create personalised experiences and focus on different product areas each year, which has been invaluable for us. The event consists of decision makers and individuals genuinely interested in what we do, making every conversation valuable. Here we know each person is crucial in the decision-making process, making our time spent with them truly worthwhile. "
Manuel Davila
Managing Director, Daabon
"The smiles in the room show people have genuinely enjoyed themselves. The interactive format, where we set up a street stall theme with five different categories from bakery, to beverage, to snacks, allows us to demonstrate our ingredients effectively. This setup lets customers move around, talk to us and each other, and engage more freely and therefore we can reach a wide range of customers and highlight the breadth of IFF's offerings beyond just flavours. Tastes of Better has sparked exciting conversations about our comprehensive ingredient solutions."
Nick French
Category Sales Leader North Europe, IFF
"Food Matters Live was a great event that exceeded our expectations, the quality of speakers was great with relevant and insightful content, the audience was a manageable size for networking with a high calibre of attendees and the event overall was carefully organised and ran smoothly throughout the days. Compared to other events, the biggest difference we found was the relevance of the audience. Everyone there had a position of power and had their own relevant and valid opinion on the topics discussed, this made the networking parts of the day worth while."

"Food Matters Live is a great event format and enabled us to have personal interactions with an engaged, interactive, and relevant audience. Each session provided a valuable opportunity for Kalsec to introduce our brand and get in front of our target customers, who ordinarily we wouldn’t get the chance to meet. We can see the value of this peer-to-peer approach and look forward to continuing the discussions started on the day."
Chloe Stewart
Marketing Manager Europe, Kalsec
“Traditional trade shows can be very fleeting, but Tastes of Better offers four dedicated one-hour blocks with just you and delegates where you can sit down and get real-time feedback from the room. It’s been a breath of fresh air having everyone in front of us for an hour to engage, taste the innovation on-show through several courses, discuss trends and learn about the business.”
Dale Hearmon
Country Manager at Langdon Ingredients UK
“It was fantastic to have the chance to meet such a variety of profiles in the bakery sector and beyond and gain an insight into the specific regional needs across the UK and Ireland. The event allowed us to reach this local ecosystem, granting access to 90 people from the NPD community in just one day and a chance to explain our solutions to these experts.”
