Technology has changed the retail landscape. Shoppers have become more demanding and expect rich, accurate data on everything they purchase, from provenance to allergens, packaging composition to calorie counts, and everything in between.

In the latest Table Talk Podcast, in partnership with GS1 UK, we investigate what retailers, manufacturers and the industry as a whole are doing to tackle these challenges. Lending their valuable insight are Richard Sadler, customer director at Unilever, Dan Sands, head of brand engagement at GS1 UK, and Paul Sumner, programme manager at Tesco.

The second in our Gut Health Series looks at the mystery and science of the gut:brain axis. In this episode, Dr. Megan Rossi (The Gut Health Doctor), a leading researcher in gastrointestinal health and author of Eat Yourself Healthy, joins us to talk about the intrinsic link between gut health and mental health.

A leading Research Fellow at King’s College London, Dr. Rossi is currently investigating nutrition-based therapies in gut health, including pre- and probiotics, dietary fibres, plant-based diversity, the low-FODMAP diet and food additives.

Laser weeding? Agricultural robots? Is the future of farming going to be a hybrid of human and technology? Yes, and in the latest Table Talk Podcast we explain how and why.

Joining us to provide his expert insight into AgTech is Professor Simon Blackmore, a key figure in the development of Precision Farming and agricultural robotics, who will discuss what is happening now and how the future of farming will be affected by technology.
