#FOODTALKS: How good food business can help build back better

Webinar 29 Sep 2020 17:00 00:00

Join us for the 25th Food Talks, where the Food Ethics Council, Impact Hub Kings Cross, Organico and London Food Link, Sustain will explore how good food business can help us build back better. Part of our 2020 #FoodTalk series.

The event is part of the 2020 #FoodTalks series, which has an overarching theme this year of ‘We are all emergency respondents now’. The meeting will be held online via Zoom.

How can food businesses play their role in not just getting through the pandemic, but addressing the multiple emergencies we face, including climate, biodiversity and obesity crises? Our economy is in recession and the furlough scheme is ending soon. How can we remain hopeful amidst continuing difficult times ahead? How have food businesses adapted and changed business models? Should restaurateurs and food business owners get involved in influencing policy? What roles can food business leaders play in helping build back better – in ways that address root causes of some of the issues we face? How can we all play a part?

Speakers will include Thomasina Miers (co-founder of Wahaca and former winner of Masterchef) and Geetie Singh-Watson (restaurateur, including Riverford at The Duke of Cambridge and The Bull Inn in Totnes) and Christopher Kong (co-founder of Better Nature, promoting plant-based eating with tempeh). Hear insights from our expert speakers and share your own questions and views too.

#FoodTalks is brought to you by a partnership of the Food Ethics CouncilImpact Hub Kings CrossOrganico, and London Food Link, part of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming.
