Nutrition in
the community

Through a series of insightful case studies, dynamic panel discussions and informative presentations, these practical seminars will bring together industry, government and community figures sharing practical strategies and insights into the effective management of obesity, malnutrition and reducing health inequalities in the community.
In addition, sessions will look at how to boost workplace productivity through improved employee nutrition, behavioural science and the latest technologies and theories supporting the adoption of healthier diets.

The future of
sustainable diets

Our food systems contribute 21%-37% of global greenhouse gases. Changing what we eat, where it comes from and how it comes to us, will play a critical role in helping to reduce global carbon emissions. These seminars will explore what needs to happen to make our diets more sustainable – from seed to plate – and how to influence consumers to make sustainable choices.

Hear from experts exploring the latest in innovative technology to green our supply chain, new product development for plant based and alternative proteins, and how to shift the consumer mindset towards more sustainable food choices. Join forward thinkers, disruptors and innovators shaping the future of our food and diet.

Connecting with consumers: the future of packaging design and creative marketing


Consumer trends in sustainability and wellbeing continue to dominate customer thinking when it comes to their buying habits. With packaging as important as the product in engaging with the customer, these seminars will look at how best to connect with customers through packaging design and creative marketing strategies.

They will explore how trends are influencing consumer mindsets and shifting attitudes and how brands are using their value and purpose to engage consumers in new and relevant ways to create a stronger dialogue with consumers.

Future of
retail trends


These sessions provide a fast-paced series of panel discussions and insight spotlights into some of the key retail trends driving consumer demand across the food, nutrition, better-for-you and health and wellbeing categories.

Among the themes under the spotlight will be free-from, gut health, plant based, vegan and meat free retail trends. Experts will share their views on key issues including the future of sustainable plant based nutrition; how industry keeps innovating to meet consumer demand for new concepts – from free-from to gut health; and what’s next for the health and wellbeing FMCG landscape.
