5. Food Manufacture Live Programme: Artificial Intelligence – Science Fiction or

Ever wondered how machine learning in food and beverage could help you do more with
less? Our Artificial Intelligence seminar, headed up by Andrew Dalziel, VP, Industry Solution
& Strategy at Infor, considers the importance of machine learning as well as giving examples
of where and how it is already delivering significant business value to companies. 12:15pm –
1:00pm, Monday 24th April.

6. Food Manufacture Live Programme: The Race to Net-Zero

The Food & Drink Federation has set its members the ambition of being net-zero by 2040. Is
this achievable and what is being done across the industry? This seminar discusses what

priorities food and drink businesses should have and the impact rising inflation and the cost-
of-living crisis could have on this target. 12:30pm – 1:15pm, Tuesday 25th April.

7. Food Manufacture Live Programme: Does meat have a future?

For a vocal minority, it’s a major cause of climate change – while consumers worried about
mixed health messages are getting an appetite for plant proteins. The debate as to whether
this climate represents a threat or opportunity will be on during this seminar, as well as
discussing how companies can promote products without seeming defensive and where the
category will be five years from now. 2:00pm – 2:45pm, Wednesday 26th April.

learn more about what’s happening in the sector, meet innovators and witness new exciting

“Foodex is big, informative and fun. With having everything under one roof, we get a chance
to have a stroll around other areas where we might not even think about looking, but then
something might pop up and we see that we actually are interested.”
