A series of conversations between experts from across the spectrum of food production, preparation and promotion. Sustainability will be our central theme but we will also explore survival and innovation during the Covid lockdown, its possible long term effects on the food industry and shine light on the science of human nutrition. With audience participation very much encouraged we aim to provide an entertaining and friendly exchange of ideas and discussion because, well, Food Matters!
