THE ECONOMIC OUTLOOK
Roger Martin-Fagg, Economist
Roger, a stalwart of the Federation’s Business Conferences, joined us again for our Online conference.
He highlighted that Governments around the World have changed the way they view Government debt. So, rather than focusing on reducing they have collectively injected massive funds into their respective economies.
TOP 10 FOOD & DRINK TRENDS AND THE SOCIAL, CULTURAL DRIVING FORCES BEHIND THEM
Charles Banks, The Food People
We had the pleasure of Charles Bank, co-founder of The Food People, joined us for this year’s BFFF Business Conference, where he talked to us about the top 10 food and drink trends of 2021/22.
It was interesting to hear that frozen is one of the top 10 trends – “Consumers of all ages are very enticed by the taste, health and budget credentials of frozen food”.
Nicola Thomas, FDEA
Participating in the BFFF Business Conference on Tuesday we heard Nicola Thomas of the Food and Drink Exporters Association (FDEA) give an overview of the opportunities that exist in the export market.
Her first point was that in many regions of the World the Food Markets are changing in structure so that in many ways they resemble Grocery and Food Service Markets in Europe.
