Food Matters Live unveils high profile education programme

Tackling obesity, malnutrition, sustainable food business, packaging and personalised nutrition will be among the hot topics discussed by more than 400 experts in this year's education programme at Food Matters Live.

Eden Project founder Sir Tim Smit, Iceland's Nick Canning, the Food and Drink Federation's Ian Wright, Leon Restaurants' Henry Dimbleby and broadcaster Professor Claudia Hammond will lead a stellar line-up of speakers taking part in the conference at London ExCeL on 17-19 November 2015.

The conference will be chaired by BBC presenters Jonathan Dimbleby, Anita Anand and Justin Webb and is just one of the features of the three-day, free-to-attend Food Matters Live.

The seminar programme will also offer visitors an opportunity to gain practical advice from more than 300 expert speakers based on case studies and real-life experiences, covering a range of issues including the nutritional needs of an ageing population and the growth in free-from foods.

Briony Mansell-Lewis, director for Food Matters Live, said: "We're delighted to be hosting such a broad range of distinguished speakers for 2015. Their breadth of expertise will provide visitors with invaluable insight and create a platform where solutions to complex issues surrounding food, health and nutrition can be explored and evaluated."

Ian Wright, director general of the Food and Drink Federation, added: "We are pleased to support Food Matters Live alongside other partners from across the food supply chain, health, academia and government. The importance of taking a multi-stakeholder approach to improved nutrition and public health is reflected in the varied line-up of expert speakers and broad range of topics covered - we look forward to contributing to a constructive and impactful event."
