Innovations in Food Europe 2019

Date: 23rd October 2019 - 24th October 2019 Location: London - UK

With the constantly changing demands in the food industry, as well as the rise in health conscious individuals, the food industry faces changes in the near future. It will not only have to adapt to them, but also work together with other players in the industry to thrive.

ACI’s Innovations In Food Europe conference will take place in London, UK on the 23rd and 24th of October 2019.

The conference will discuss:

  • New policies and regulations in the food industry,
  • How to keep up with changing demands and trends
  • Addressing opportunities in the market brought by lifestyle changes
  • How to thrive in the industry as both a start-up, or a larger company.

These are all very current topics and should be a great asset to players in the food & beverage industry.

The Innovations In Food Europe Conference will bring together distinct and influential stakeholders from the value chain. They are going to discuss the latest challenges and developments making an impact on the industry. The topics will be the need for clean labels, and the opportunities brought by millennials.  At the same time speakers  will examine differing diet lifestyles as well as the need for adult soft drinks. These will be presented using case studies, interactive panels, single presentations, as well as a lot of discussions and networking opportunities.

Join us in London for two days of exchanging perspectives, learning and excellent networking opportunities with your peers.
