Judith Batchelar, OBE & Director of Brand at Sainsbury’s will be heading up our panel of experts as they examine the future of the Food Industry.

The UK food sector is at a tipping point, as the climate crisis, social change and workforce pressures combined with astounding advances in agri-tech, protein transition and low carbon stimulate rapid change in this most vital of industries. Setting the pace of that change is the South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone, one of the UK’s biggest food industry developments for five years. Its ambition is to be the UK’S leading advanced Innovation Cluster Hub for the food sector, complimenting the adjacent agricultural, food
processing and logistical cluster.

This is where tomorrow’s food technology is being tested, developed and deployed. In this unique setting brands and businesses can benefit by associating with a unique and fastgrowing pool of agri-tech talent.

  • How significant is the South Lincolnshire agri-tech network and how is the scale of
    talent and diversity there driving collaboration opportunities?

  • How are local bodies co-operating on infrastructure investment and incentivisation to
