Join us at Food Matters Live

We’ll be representing the importance of healthier food production and marketing at this major cross-sector event – join us as we meet the innovators shaping the future of food and drink

This November we’re delighted to join our sister charities, Consensus Action on Salt & Health (CASH) and Action on Sugar, at Food Matters Live 2017 in London – the UK’s fastest growing cross-sector event showcasing innovation in the food and drink industry. 

The three-day event is dedicated to food, health and nutrition and it brings together different industries including food manufacture, retail, government, nutrition and public health to encourage healthier, more creative and more collaborative food production and promotion. 

The education programme for 2017 features celebrated chef Heston Blumenthal, former Sainbury's CEO Justin King and neuroscientist Baroness Susan Greenfield, heading up an all-star cast of 400 speakers across 100 conference and seminar sessions.   

Our CEO Katharine will be giving a seminar about how nutritional labelling and packaging visuals play an ever more increasing role in consumers’ decision-making process about their food choice.   We’ll get involved in debates on how to prevent long-term disease, and learn from leading experts on the latest advances.

  • Conferences and debates. More than 50 leading lights from the worlds of politics, retail, manufacturing, science and health will be debating the impact of Brexit, the latest on the childhood obesity plan, assessing the sugar reduction programme, the future of food design and a host of other hot topics.
