Organised by The Times and The Sunday Times Scotland, in partnership with Opportunity North East SeedPod, The Future of Food and Drink Summit will explore how the UK’s biggest manufacturing sector can deliver more entrepreneurial growth and high-skilled jobs, and increase productivity and profitability.

Taking place in north east Scotland – a region of high-quality produce and innovation, producing 20% of Scotland’s food and drink – the event will bring together forward-looking producers, manufacturers, processors, and retailers.

The Summit, hosted by Times radio presenter Calum Macdonald, will provide a whole supply chain perspective on the future of this dynamic industry and hear from the entrepreneurs leading some of its most exciting businesses, investors discussing what sets successful challenger brands apart, and look at what’s coming next with analysts and innovators.


The team behind the £27 million ONE SeedPod industry innovation hub - which opens next year in Aberdeen - will explain how the facility will accelerate consumer-led innovation and provide practical solutions to key industry challenges.


Book tickets today and join entrepreneurs and business leaders, investors and sector experts sharing their experience, insight and knowledge in keynotes, panel discussions, showcase sessions and Q&A.


There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to network with peers so you can build the connections you need to succeed.
