.The City Food & Drink Lecture is an annual, invitation-only high-profile fixture in the City of London and international food industry calendars. The Lecture is delivered by a leading figure in the British food business who is invited to speak about the issues they regard as most important in shaping the way food is produced, distributed, marketed, sold and consumed. An expert panel then debates and explores the subject as well as wider questions from the audience.
