Member Workshop on Sustainable Healthy Diets (London)


FREE event


FDF member workshop on sustainable healthy diets on Monday 20th January 2020.


As discussed at the last FDF President’s Committee, we are holding a workshop to kick start a discussion among members on sustainable healthy diets and the potential role of food manufacturers to help deliver change.


We are delighted to have a line-up of expert speakers in the morning session to provide different perspectives and insights to inform our discussions.  In the afternoon, members will consider the opportunities and challenges for FDF and members and discuss the potential remit for an FDF position statement on sustainable healthy diets.
