The City Food Lecture Future Generation Forum
Recognising the importance of developing the next generation of industry leaders, the City Food Lecture has for many years supported and accommodated a selected number of students and their tutors from the leading agri-food universities. We organise a specific student programme with firstly a morning visit to a prominent food business operation then arrange a private question and answer session with our keynote speaker and panellists at Guildhall before joining in the main event. This programme provides students with the opportunity to meet senior representatives from many of the major food-sector businesses and experience their operations from an insider’s perspective.
The 2021 City Food Lecture to reflect the current times was organised as a virtual event in association with the NFU . The students engaged with sector chiefs led by Phil Hambling to explore a diverse number of topics from animal health and welfare, combinable crops to livestock and sustainability.
Plans are underway to create a Hybrid event during the 2022 City Food Lecture to be held on the 17th February 2022 at Guildhall. Further details to follow.
