A decade ago, success in the food and beverage industry in China required a different set of ingredients. But an evolving food landscape means more discerning consumers and a greater interest in innovative solutions and stories. From restaurants to consumer packaged goods, players entering or operating in any position across the food and beverage industry face new challenges: how to make space for a compelling brand story, how to
utilise technology to advance a food experience, how to manage CSR and sustainability considerations. What else do brands need to do to successfully reach and retain consumers, and what does it tell us about tomorrow? What does innovation mean today when it comes to telling stories about food and beverage in China?We’re bringing together creators, restaurateurs and innovators in the consumer-facing space with entrepreneurs, corporates, thoughts leaders, and experts in food technology and innovation.
