The Future of Food Manufacturing Post Covid – the Long View

The COVID19 pandemic has created new ways of working and has accelerated others already in progress. This talk will look at food manufacturing over the next 30 years and take you to a world where by 2050 our society, our eating habits and our means of acquiring food will be very different and manufacturing likely not recognizable as it currently is.
