FDF Event

Food & Drink sector challenges


We are delighted to invite you to a seminar organised by FDF and Lombard on the current opportunities and challenges in food and drink.

The food and drink industry is faced with increasing change; Brexit, the changing face of high street retail, the rise of the online and on demand economies plus the plastics and packaging debate are all key issues for our sector.  Are they opportunities or threats?

Attending this event will help you:

  • Understand current challenges the 'on demand economy' is posing through the likes of Amazon, Just Eat and Deliveroo shaking up the market
  • Consider the ups and downs of technology and whether this is replacing customer service/loyalty
  • Gain a holistic view of the UK Food & Drink sector – current challenges and opportunities
  • Achieve greater insight into the 2018 Circular Economy Package; a Europe-wide strategy on plastics
  • Learn about the future challenges surrounding packaging and plastic
