Game-changing line-up revealed for London food tech week 2019

London Food Tech Week - the world’s largest week-long festival and showcase of the latest food trends and companies using technology to transform the food and drink ecosystem – will return to the capital from 20 to 24 May 2019 with a game-changing lineup.

Across London, London Food Tech Week will play host to a series of high energy and engaging events including investor, expert and industry drop-ins for startups, case studies profiling small and large businesses that worked together to solve real-life challenges in the food industry, and community events and talks hosted by some of the world’s top Food Tech companies.

Confirmed speakers include Giuseppe Scionti, founder & CEO of NovaMeat which uses technology to fabricate and commercialize a new generation of plant-based fibrous meat substitutes, Isabel Hoffmann, founder & CEO of Tellspec, an analytics company that offers real-time non-destructive sensors for food and for human milk analysis and Ivan Farneti, managing partner at Five Seasons Ventures - the first European venture fund focused exclusively on Food Tech.

The week also has home-grown talent on the menu including hospitality power list Robin Clark, business partnerships director at Just Eat UK, Heather Mills, owner and founder of VBites Foods and Lisa and Alana MacFarlane, co-founders of the Gut Stuff.

Each day has an overarching theme to be explored which helps visitors plan their experiences and drop in and out of sessions they want to attend throughout the week. Each day, YFood host their headline content at a different hero venue, chosen to match the theme of the day. There are also exciting fringe events, hosted by members of the YFood community which are open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis.
