From clean eating to revolutionary food tech, discover the global trends and innovations changing the way we eat at Food Matters Live 2018. Whether it’s the longevity of the free-from boom, plant-based proteins in sports nutrition or game-changing food tech, business leaders, policy makers, manufacturers and health professionals will debate the future of food and drink when Food Matters Live returns to London ExCeL from 20-22 November.

The big issues, from the future for food design and sustainable diets to the challenges and opportunities posed by Brexit, the impact of calorie reduction targets and the sugar tax will be tackled by senior figures from across the sector on the main conference stage. The line-up includes: Public Health England’s chief executive Duncan Selbie on calorie targets and tackling obesity, Blue Planet II executive producer James Honeyborne on plastic waste, Britvic’s Matt Barwell on next steps for sugar reduction, Marije Vogelzang, of the Design Academy Eindhoven, on eating design for the future and McDonalds UK chief executive Paul Pomroy and Leon co-founder Henry Dimbleby on healthy eating trends for restaurants.


Meanwhile, hundreds of experts will offer insight and new ways of working on issues from packaging, new product development and functional foods to post-GDPR marketing and changes in the children’s food aisle in a series of seminars grouped around key health and wellbeing themes: retail trends, future technologies, nutrition for health and wellbeing, the future of free-from, packaging, marketing and tackling obesity.

From raw kale chips to vegan churros and tahini energy bars and organic mochachino drinking chocolate, the latest natural, nutritious and ethical products will be showcased in the Food Matters Live exhibition, featuring 800 manufacturers and ingredient suppliers in zones reflecting growth areas including healthy snacking, free-from and sports nutrition.

Among them, the Drink Well Zone will feature some of the latest functional and healthy drinks while the Start Up Zone hosts innovations from the newest entrepreneurs and the Research Hub offers insight into science and tech advances reshaping the sector.

Exciting Ingredients

With the largest gathering of ingredients companies in the UK, Food Matters Live offers an unmissable chance to learn about the latest exciting ingredients from no-salt, no-sugar Huegli flavoured oils and antioxidant-rich prickly pear cactus water to ‘sugar displacement product’ avante and organic blueberry powder for use in smoothies, yoghurts and muffins.

And a cast of international presenters will host live cooking demonstrations and installations on the exhibition floor, including, new for 2018, the Innovative Ingredients Live theatre, which will look at the science behind new functional ingredients and nutraceuticals from natural flavouring for meat substitutes to tiger nuts.

There will be plenty of business opportunities for buyers to meet innovative food producers and ingredient suppliers using Match, a dedicated matchmaking service.

Food Matters Live is on at London’s ExCeL from 20 to 22 November 2018 and is free to attend if you pre-register, including entry to the conference, seminars and visitor attractions. Register now for free entry at www.foodmatterslive.com.
