The AgriFood Training Partnership are looking forward to exhibiting our courses and showcasing training opportunities at the ‘Food Matters Live’ event, which will be taking place at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London’s Docklands from Tuesday 21st – Thursday 23rd November 2017.

The main event – the Food Matters Live Conference – will be taking place at the centre of the show and features over 50 influential figures including new food innovators, business leaders from across the food and drink industry, government ministers, scientists, renowned chefs, leading commentators and health professionals - in a series of thought-provoking debates to inspire, challenge assumptions, explore new ways of working and foster innovation.
Keynote speakers at the Main Conference will include:
