City Food Lecture 2022

Thursday 17th February 2022

Guildhall, City of London


The City Food Lecture is an annual, invitation-only high profile fixture in the City of London and international food industry calendars. The Lecture is delivered every year by a leading figure in the British food business who is invited to speak about the issues they regard as most important in shaping the way food is produced, distributed, marketed, sold and consumed.

Held in the Great Hall at the prestigious Guildhall and attended by over 650,  the event is organised by the seven City livery companies whose roots are in the food industry – namely the Worshipful Companies of Bakers, Butchers, Cooks, Farmers, Fishmongers, Fruiterers and Poulters.

The City Food Lecture was held as a virtual event in 2021. Click here to view the video.
