Discover the next big thing in healthy food and drink at Food Matters Live 2019

Food Matters Live

With the hottest trends and most exciting healthy food and drink brands on the menu, retail insiders cannot afford to miss Food Matters Live 2019.

Returning to ExCeL London on 19-20 November, the event showcases on-trend brands and products and serves up live attractions, business opportunities and a renowned educational programme.

From algae chocolate to insect-based snacks, the Food Matters Live exhibition discovers the best new products on the market.

The most exciting new start-ups from the UK, selected by a panel of influential buyers, feature on the UK Future Brands Pavilion while the International Pavilions showcase products and ingredients from across the world.

Modern shopping trends

The Future of Retail Trends live theatre will hear buyers' insights into the buying habits changing the way we shop. Elen Ormson, Partner and Health Brand Manager at Waitrose, CoYo Founder Bethany Eaton and Planet Organic's Food Service Director Caroline Ottoy will join panels on the future of free-from and plant-based foods.

Meanwhile, some of the big issues for the global food and drink industry will be examined in the Food Matters Live seminars, which bring together more than 250 experts from across the sector.

They include an in-depth look at how we can reduce our meat intake and make sustainable diets the norm, as well as assessing the industry's progress in helping to reduce UK obesity.

And, as a Waitrose store trials a packaging-free refill station, the seminars examine the future for sustainable packaging as well as the food tech and product development combating waste.

Networking opportunities

And for those seeking business matchmaking opportunities, Match offers a dedicated meeting space for buyers and suppliers at the heart of the event, supported by educational roundtables, buyer tours and a bespoke buyer event.

Food Matters Live Director Briony Mansell-Lewis said: "A new generation of health-conscious consumers and disruptive start-ups are driving a revolution in food and drink.

"Food Matters Live serves up the most exciting food and drink innovators from the UK and around the world and the ingredients companies who can help them meet the demand for natural, clean-label, healthy, plant-based and sustainable products.

"Offering insight into fast-paced trends, exciting innovations in nutraceuticals, food tech, sustainable packaging and more, as well as unrivalled business opportunities, it is an essential date in the diary for food and drink professionals who want to keep ahead of the curve."
