Unprecedented population growth and the rural exodus of the global middle class are changing the global food footprint. Developing innovative ideas and processes, new products and services, new technologies and new business models will be key to feeding the changing needs of the world’s population; driving more sustainable models of production and consumption, and meeting the challenge of global climate change.

To stimulate our cooperation in this area, the UK’s Department of International Trade (DIT) at the British Embassy in Paris will hold a series of Franco-British roundtables on the 28th February 2019.

This event is an opportunity for French and UK actors to shape together the future of the Food & Drink industry – government, experts and business – sharing best practice, discussing common challenges and identifying new areas for collaboration and exchange.

Additional speakers to be confirmed.
