Future of food.

We recently sponsored The City Food Lecture 2019 which was given by Dominic Blakemore, group chief executive of Compass Group on the topic of ‘Trust & Tech – the Future of Food’.

Held at London’s Guildhall, the City Food Lecture is organised by the seven City of London livery companies involved in agriculture and food, and draws an audience of some 650 industry leaders, academics and liverymen.

The lecture was followed by a panel debate chaired by Chris White, managing director of Fruitnet Media International and featuring Minette Batters, president of the National Farmers Union; Professor Corinna Hawkes, director, Centre for Food Policy School of Arts and Social Sciences, City University; and Tamira Treffers-Herrera, regional head Europe at Rabobank.
