City Food Lecture set to focus on future food trends
The annual and invitation-only event, City Food Lecture 2016, will be held next month and will focus on future food trends.
The event takes place on 16th February at London’s Guildhall and will feature Christophe Jouan, chief executive of The Future Foundation, as a keynote speaker. The lecture will be called ‘What, when and how will we be eating in 2025?’
The speech promises to provide insight into future food trends and it is hoped it will be a catalyst for debate across the industry.
Other speakers include Margaret Mountford, former star of The Apprentice, who will join a panel discussion also featuring Judith Batchelar, director of brands at Sainsbury’s, Chris Elliot, a professor of food safety at the University of Belfast and food writer and futurologist, Lyndon Gee.
The Lord Mayor of London is set to attend and provide a welcome address.
Jouan commented: “I’m very excited and honoured to be asked to give the keynote address at such a prestigious event for the UK food industry.
“The Future Foundation has looked in depth at the myriad of factors which affect global good trends and some of our findings, I believe, will be an eye opener for even experienced industry insiders.
“I sincerely hope people will enjoy the evening and I look forward to meeting the key figures from the British food industry in person.”
The City Food Lecture is organised by seven City of London companies whose roots are in the food industry – these include the Worshipful Companies of Butcher, Bakers, Cooks, Farmers, Fishmongers, Fruiterers and Poulters.
