6:30 PM - London

Brexit has been a massive distraction for many in the UK supply chain, but what happens next? Consumer trends keep on changing and the market keeps on consolidating in some areas and fragmenting in others. It looks as if some things in the supply chain post Brexit will seem familiar, but other things will change the supply chain dynamic for ever.

The use of social media to communicate with consumers continues apace. The use of big data and blockchain type technologies are coming to the fore. Provenance is still a key issue as is the whole question of sustainability.

The high street is still under pressure from online and convenience based shopping systems. What are the future prospects, threats and opportunities for those based in the UK and those further away?

Come and ask a panel of experts, deliberately chosen to reflect a range of different interests in the market place from the UK and then much further away, on how they see the UK food and drink market & supply chain developing over the next 12 months on onwards. 

The Panel
  • Michelle Charrington, Food Executive, Invest NI
  • Martin Sutherland, Commercial Director, Food Industry Centre - Cardiff Met University
  • Luke Crossman, Senior Market Analyst, AHDB 
  • George Smith, UK & Scandinavian Director, Washington Apples Commission
  • Jaime Cardenas, UK Director, Peruvian Trade & Investment Office
  • Dr Chris Kebbell, Agriculture Counsellor, NZ High Commission
This event will be chaired by John Giles - President of CIM's Food, Drink and Agriculture Group.
