Here's the latest industry & summit news...

WFIS Takeaways blog article - Euromonitor International

Euromonitor International presented once again this year at World Food Innovate Summit on “What's Next for Snackification in the COVID-19 Era”?, this time of course in a fully virtual setting. Something we are all used to now, and which I don’t believe has reduced the profile of this event at European and global levels. Nestlé, Danone, Mondelez, Coca-Cola, AB InBev, Kraft Heinz, Barilla, Natural Balance Foods, Illycaffè and Forbes all contributed content at this year’s event which drew several hundreds of attendees.

Food Innovate Summit was as much an essential networking event as it was a vital learning process. Having access to so many senior team members from all the names you know in the food industry was incredible, being able to grow and share in their hard-earned experience.

Damien Lee, CEO and Founder of Mr Lee's Pure Foods Ltd.

Good news for all impact lovers – there is hope in the food crisis. Just connect pioneers with food experts. The Food Innovate Summit showed to me how fruitful such connections can be

Thimo V. Schmitt-Lord MBE, CEO at Bayer Foundations

Very inspiring and fruitful

Innovation Manager, Danone

It was fantastic and exceeded ALL of my expectations.
