Sustainable Foods London is the UK’s only dedicated Sustainable F&D industry event and we know that it has never been more important to unite sustainable professionals under the one roof.
Our event is now ﬁrmly established as a credible way to exchange ideas and ultimately change attitudes throughout the F&D industry, and beyond. Sustainable Foods London is a unique, independent platform that not only offers valuable insight into what is happening in the industry today, but it is the place where truly sustainable products are showcased, and ideas are formed, and plans are made.
The sustainable F&D industry is worth a staggering £15bn with one in three consumers claimed to have stopped purchasing certain brands or products because they had ethical or sustainability related concerns about them, with 34% choosing brands that have environmentally sustainable practices.
And while we expect the war in Ukraine, rising energy prices and inﬂation to slow growth in 2022, the move to sustainable products is inevitable if we are to reduce the environmental impact of feeding the world’s population. The food supply chain is broken with the coming months threatening the spectre of a food shortage that could last for years. The high cost of staple foods has dragged 250m into famine and 1.6bn into food insecurity.
Sustainability measures must be implemented within the food transition, with Sustainable Foods London providing a small clog in the wheel. Recent studies have shown us that attitudes are changing towards how our food is made, and what impact its production is having on our climate. We can see strong evidence of how future generations will behave as buyers, and how they are becoming increasingly impatient with existing food production methods.
We will continue to deliver a powerful, inspiring, and challenging platform and all we ask in exchange is that you continue to use Sustainable Foods London as an important event in the sustainable F&D calendar.
Thank you and hope to see you in 2024
Hundreds of sustainable buyers, brands and industry leaders chose to attend Sustainable Foods London 2022, and we are honoured and humbled that the industry has made our event the ‘go to event’ for sustainability.
We believe that the sustainable F&D industry deserves focus, and it is not enough to simply add a few topics to an agenda or create a small area inside an existing show.
