The Live Events
What was on in 2012?
The live events formed a central role at Food & Drink Expo and Farm Shop & Deli and played host to experts from across the grocery, foodservice, wholesale, manufacturing and speciality retail sectors.
We delivered the latest information on market trends and research, and hopefully addressed any issues affecting visitors' businesses.
Levi Roots drew a crowd of over 300 people for his session on his journey from Dragon slayer to Sauce Man...he even gave us a song!
The Observer's Jay Rayner talked about the history of food availability and pricing and offered a global perspective on food security; "The world is not one big breadbasket. British supermarkets need to pay more to British producers to increase our self-sufficiency. We need to be in a position to supply ourselves."
