Over 100 food industry leaders and senior directors from Europe, Asia and the Americas will soon convene in Cannes, France for the 2014 Food Vision summit to discuss key issues facing today’s global industry, from sustainability to innovation; alternative protein sources to consumer engagement.
“Now in its second year, Food Vision is proving to be a strong draw for individuals and organizations eager to explore the economic, social, scientific and environmental issues affecting the world and its relationship with food,” says Vision Events Director, Christina Wood.
“The understanding and insights they will gain here will help them create successful strategies that address market change and fuel profitable growth. As a forum for debate, Food Vision encourages radical thinking, invites challenge and provides for an honest evaluation of opportunity and risk.”
William Reed’s Food Vision event is driven by the key issues of innovation, sustainability, cutting-edge food science, and changing consumer behavior, with the program offering food science through the focused lens of commercial interest to identify strategies for profitability and growth.
