Event description
Professor David Hughes is a vibrant and much sought-after speaker on the global food industry, particularly on consumer and retail trends

About this Event

Consumers are driving change in the global food industry like never before, triggering innovation and disrupting whole industries. The UK’s David Hughes will talk about key food trends in the year ahead and the related growth opportunities available for Alberta.

Plant-based alternatives will be there, of course! But where is the movement going? And what else will be on the plate and in the grocery aisle?

Also speaking at the event about their plans for the year ahead will be the federal supercluster Protein Industries Canada — you’ll be able to learn what what they have planned for 2020. What is their strategy for the next year? How can you best work together with PIC to create new opportunities in plant protein?

Widely known as Dr. Food, David spends 300 days a year traveling the world and has an upfront view on constantly evolving food and beverage developments — at the consumer, grocery and food-service levels.

Around the globe David works with multinational corporations, R&D organizations, growers, manufacturers, governments and others to work out the best ways to embrace change. He stays on top of leading-edge research with his academic work at the Centre for Value Chain Research at the University of Kent and at Imperial College London. He’s also a visiting professor at the Royal Agriculture College, UK.

You don’t want to miss David's energetic, insightful and humorous talk. Or the chance to meet directly with PIC representatives. After the presentations, there will be a networking reception with small bites and drinks.
