PlantPower! Seizing opportunities from the vegan and plant-based sector | 24th April 2018
Chair: Simon Wright
Last year, we witnessed a shift in the food and drink purchasing behaviours of consumers as they became more devoted to healthy and plant-based diets than ever before. Google shared that searches for ‘vegan’ were at an all-time high and food producers began to take note. Pret A Manger released a new range of vegan goods and Sainsbury’s reported a 300% increase in sales of their own-brand vegan cheese.
Shedding some light on this topic will be our seven industry experts. Each will present their own experiences of the vegan and plant-based environment to demonstrate how brands can maximise potential growth from this lifestyle change. The day will be chaired by food industry expert, Jane Milton.
Hear from experts including:
Jenny Hearne, Head of Thinkers’ Thoughts at Watch Me Think
Sara Novakovik, Director of Olivers Whole Foods
Rupi Zani, Head of Quality and Safety at Pizza Express
Peter Ahye, Founder of Freaks of Nature
Abigail Stevens, Trademark Relations Officer at The Vegan Society
Isabelle Kelly, Sustainability Projects Officer at Quorn
Tim Barford, Manager at Veg Fest.
From start to finish, the day will be full of interesting learnings. Not only do we have seven presentations from key thought-leaders in the industry, but there will be a number of interactive roundtable sessions to allow you to network and get answers to those questions you’ve wanted to ask.
We have a special 10% early bird discount until March 31st, so why not reserve your seat here.
