Lisa Jenkins looks forward to the products with a healthy or nutritional slant that will be on display at this year's Food Matters Live event on 17-19 November at ExCeL London
Food Matters Live is the UK's first cross- sector event bringing together professionals from across the food and drink, nutrition and health industries to address a very contemporary issue: the relationship between food, health, nutrition and their connections with the environment, population health and wellbeing.
Incorporated into this three-day show are a host of features, as well as exhibitors showcasing their products in this fast-growing market.
The Enterprise Zone, sponsored by the Unilever Foundry, will showcase the most cutting-edge and innovative solutions from start-up businesses promoting their latest food and drink products, services and new formulations.
Drink Well is a dedicated area show- casing ‘better for you' drinks. This area enables visitors to taste and learn more about the nutrient profiles of a range of soft drinks.
New for 2015, the Tea Garden provides a dedicated area promoting the natural properties and health benefits of tea. The interactive space will provide companies with the opportunity to run tasting sessions and demonstrations explaining the health benefits of a variety of different blends.
Here, we take a peek at some of the best products to look out for at the event, taking place from 17-19 November 2015 at London's ExCel.
