City Food Lecture

Like all previous lectures, the City Food Lecture prides itself on gathering the who’s who in the food and agricultural industries. It is organised by the seven City of London livery companies: the Worshipful Company of Bakers, Butchers, Cooks, Farmers, Fishmongers, Fruiterers and Poulters and will again focus on the latest topics of discussion driving the industry forward in 2022 and beyond. 

The event will take place at London’s Guildhall. Guests who are unable to physically attend will be able to join remotely via a virtual hub. 

John Giles, chairman of City Food Lecture said: “2022 marks a huge moment in the history of the City Food Lecture as we will be celebrating our 21st​ lecture.

Back in 2001 we started out by looking at ‘The UK food chain – making life better’ led by key note speaker, Peter Blackburn, CBE and former chairman and CEO of Nestle and over the years each lecture has been led by an equally hot topic led by our key note speaker and panel and we’ve enjoyed the company of the who’s who with this regard. 

“2022 will be no different – we have always set out our stall to be at the forefront of the burning issues we face across the food and agricultural sectors across our livery companies, and we look forward to once again gathering 600+ industry attendees, our livery men and women as well as the future industry leaders from our student attendees next February.​”
