Event description
Get the know-how to become a trend creator and focus on filling that gap in the market to truly succeed in the FMCG industry!

About this Event

As a food and beverage brand/manufacturer or farmer it's one thing to understand the current and future trends but is that enough to really succeed in this fast paced FMCG industry - absolutely not! Sure, understanding the consumer, current and future trends are key but in isolation that barely gets you to the start line.

You need to create the future you want to see, become a trend creator and focus on filling that gap in the market to truly win.

Join us on 18th August where we will unravel how to stand out and be noticed in 2021 and beyond. What about COVID - 19? Has anything really changed in terms of consumers short or long term eating habits?

We will unpack some real 2020 case studies we have been involved with during 2020 and show you winning strategies that have created differentiation while meeting and exceeding consumer needs.

Some of these case studies were brought to life during the midst of COVID -19.

Tony Hunter and Ben Whyatt will also join us to really challenge your thinking in terms of the future of food.

With all the "alternatives" and technologies available now what will industries like dairy, meat and the food industry in general look like in 5, 10 and 20 years from now? Or will these industries as we know them actually exist?

We will be running this event live face to face (with social distancing measures in place) as well as issuing a recording of the event.
