About

The Future of Food, organized by SONAE in collaboration with main partners such as Vision 2020, Business France, ICEX Spain and the UK Science & Innovation Network is an event designed to promote the engagement of different organizations around the key challenges and opportunities shaping the future of food. It aims to be a catalyst in establishing new relationships among participants and contribute to the design of future R&D and innovation collaborative projects and the building of project consortiums.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn and share their knowledge in an event that will gather international food experts - from academia, R&D centres and other relevant organizations - to share their vision on what’s ahead for our food value chains.

The event will cover relevant topics such as food science & nutrition, circular economy, logistics and digital & emergent technologies.
