Tim Rycroft, Corporate Affairs Director, Food and Drink Federation, said:

“Digital data can provide a wealth of information for food and drink manufacturers. This briefing will present some of the tools and methods that companies can use to identify both risks and opportunities and put themselves in the best possible position.”

Fleur Hicks, Managing Director of One Four Zero, said:

“Our food and drink culture has by now fully arrived in the digital age as can be seen by commonplace practices around sharing of food imagery on Instagram, the increasing role of food bloggers and food influencers, numerous digital food review sites, blogs and forums as well as countless food ordering apps and services. But beyond the obvious digital penetration of the market, the underlying data is the actual revolution, allowing us to observe, analyse and use highly relevant brand and consumer information practically in real time to make better business decisions – both on B2B as well as on B2C side.”
