The top people from UK food and drink manufacturing will gather next month for the Food Manufacture Business Leaders’ Forum 2019.

Taking place at 20 Fenchurch Street in London on 22 January, the event attracts key people from the leading businesses in the food and drink manufacturing industry. As well as providing an opportunity for Britain's food industry leaders to discuss the pressing issues of the day, the forum also provides an ideal chance to network with other senior people within the sector.

Sponsored by international law firm DWF, this year’s topics include: the economy and political landscape, including Brexit; trading relationships and consumer behaviour; M&A activity; raw materials and energy prices; investment, employment and skills; labelling, including allergen labelling; product reformulation, including calorie and sugar reduction targets; environment and sustainability, including the effects of extreme weather and technology, industry 4.0, automation and blockchain.

The 2018 Business Leaders’ Forum generated lively debate including Shore Capital Group’s head of food Clive Black, who warned manufacturers of branded products against the practice of shrinkflation​, while the barriers to trade and extra costs of a hard Brexit were topics that created passionate discussion​ among the business leaders in the room.

If you want to be part of the debate, attendance to the forum is free, but by personal invitation only. For more information, email Rod Addy on: Ebq.Nqql@jeoz.pbz​​​.
