Blog: Dean BestConsumer Analyst Group Europe conference starts today

Dean Best | 21 March 2016

just-food (and sister site just-drinks) are the exclusive media partners for the three-day Consumer Analyst Group Europe investment conference, which starts today in London.

The likes of Danone, Tyson Foods, Kerry Group and Glanbia will discuss their performance in 2015 and their plans for 2016. (Danone's CEO may even be quizzed about the fresh speculation linking the business to US infant formula group Mead Johnson).

Today, we are set to hear from Doug Goare, the president of international "lead markets" for McDonald's, outline the QSR giant's plans outside the US.

That will be followed by foodservice consultants Horizons will discuss the global trends driving the sector.

Bryan Roberts, of UK-based marketing consultants TCC Global, will weigh up how changing consumer behaviour is affecting the retail sector.

This afternoon, business-to-business chocolate supplier Barry Callebaut is scheduled to present, with the company's CEO, former Unilever executive Antoine de Saint-Affrique, set to lay out the Swiss company's plans for the year ahead.

The day will be rounded off by Bonin Bough, the chief media and e-commerce officer at Mondelez International - a company that has targeted US$1bn in sales through the e-commerce channel by 2020 - and Dr Mario Simon, CEO of Millward Brown Vermeer, who will set out how brands can create value.

We'll be reporting on the news and views from CAGE this week.
