8 months ago by

Last week Alex Marshall and Luan Harrison who work on our technical desk attended the IFST Lecture - Surviving in a Hostile World: The Need for Food Science, which took place in London.

MorePeople were delighted to be able to contribute to the success of the lecture by being the refreshment sponsors.

The lecture was based on conversations about the changes to the food system that would contribute to a survivable future, but also practising this in a way that is achievable and fair and also provides sustainable and affordable nutrition. The lecture welcomed two guest speakers, Professor Jeremy Hill of Fonterra Co-operative Group and Dr Wayne Martindale Honorary Secretary and Trustee IFST.

Luan Harrison comments;

"It was great to attend the IFST Lecture 2023 and gain further insight into Surviving in a Hostile World: The Need for Food Science'. Both talks were very informative and I am certainly keen to read more about it. It was great to network before and after the event with both candidates and clients."

Alex Marshall continues;

It was fantastic to attend the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) Lecture 2023. The presentation from Wayne Martindale and Jeremy Hill - Surviving In a Hostile World: The Need For Food Science – was incredibly insightful and thought -provoking. It was eye- opening to see the Delta Modelling data on the nutritional requirements of the global population and the deficits in some countries. It was also great to learn about the work LettUs Grow, Raynor Foods, the University of Cambridge and the University of Lincoln are conducting on the S3 Project, working towards creating living carbon footprints. Thank you to all at the IFST for a very enjoyable and informative evening!

​MorePeople would like to thank the IFST for hosting such a great event.
