  • Bring the joy of cooking into children’s lives with School Food Matters

    Are you a chef who is passionate about the future of the food industry? Have you got a few spare hours to help educate the food producers and chefs of the future? 

    SFM provide fully funded food education programmes that look to engage students with the journey of food from cooking and growing to selling and marketing their produce, touching on sustainability and the future of the food industry along the way. 
    Learning from people already engaged in the industry is incredibly inspiring for young people and we love to offer students the opportunity to experience a cooking session with a real chef and the chance to chat to them about their career path. If you think you could offer up a half day or more to visit a London school, we’d love to hear from you. 
    Please contact for further details.

Yet food, ingredient and nutrition brands still hold the view that doing market research the traditional way will meet today’s consumer demands who are sophisticated, tech-savvy, health-conscious and incredibly vocal. The time has come to shift gears and adopt a more robust, agile, comprehensive analytics strategy to identify market-making trends and act on them quickly and efficiently by leveraging new technologies such as natural language processing and machine learning.
