THE FOOD AND DRINK INNOVATION NETWORK HOSTS SUSTAINABILITY SEMINAR

August 31st, 2010

Organised and run by Sustainability Guru DR ALAN KNIGHT OBE, these meetings happen every six months and form part of a SUSTAINABILITY CLUB where The Food and Drink Innovation Network sorts out “what’s hot and what’s not” for the Food & Drink Industry.

The seminar draws-from [and feeds-back to] the major food & drink players and Alan networks with the club members through Sustainability Bulletins and a special-access website.

The event will take place at the Staverton Park Conference Centre,Daventry, Northants on Thursday 25th November.

The agenda for the days seminar will run as follows:

The day begins with speed-briefings from industry thought-leaders which are up-to-the-minute and so have not yet been disclosed.

They will include agriculture, natural resources and food security. Primary and secondary distribution. Water & carbon. Ethics, local sourcing, fairtrade, rainforest & organic. Labelling & Law. Government Structure & Policy and more.

The Speed-Briefings on November 25th will be from:

DR ALAN KNIGHT OBE, SINGLE PLANET LIVING.

JULIAN WALKER-PALIN, HEAD OF CORPORATE POLICY FOR SUSTAINABILITY AND ETHICS, ASDA

PROFESSOR TIM LANG, FOOD POLICY, CITY UNIVERSITY.

CRAIG BENNETT,

STEVE REESON, HEAD OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY POLICY, THE FOOD & DRINK FEDERATION

After the speed-briefings an open space is run where everyone is invited to join in and propose break-outs on the big issues and then we run those break-outs in parallel for an hour and bottom-out some actions.

In the afternoon, armed with the morning briefings and break-outs Alan Knight runs a big conversation in his own edgy style.

Doors open for early birds at 8:00 am and breakfast is served for all from 8:00 am with the seminar kicking off at 9:00 am and concluding at 4:30 pm latest.
