York Food & Drink Conference - The Future of Food and Drink; Changes and Challenges
We are living through times of great change – from rapidly changing consumer demands, to the implications of Brexit, and the impact of technology in the form of automation and supply chain logistics. Yet with this change comes great opportunities for the industry; from exciting new products and inspiring shopping experiences, to improved supply chains and production methods.
The food and drink industry is the biggest manufacturing sector in the UK accounting for over 18.3 % of manufacturing output and an estimated value of £95.4bn. York and the surrounding area is home to one of the largest concentrations of food and drink producers in the UK, ranging from multi-nationals to an ever growing number of specialist artisan makers and brewers.
Our host Chris Stott, Partner and Head of Food and Drink KPMG UK, returns for another year and the conference will feature inspirational stories and case studies about the changing nature of food and drink production and consumer trends. Hear from the experts on the future of the industry in Yorkshire, how to prepare for buyers and present your product in the best possible way. Our small business showcase returns and you will hear first-hand from thriving companies who are stepping up to these challenges in their own unique way
