This study provides you with a step-by-step plan, from recommended actions during the first stages of the outbreak to preparing an exit strategy for after the crisis. Countries, enterprises and civilians throughout the world have been affected by the COVID pandemic. The virus first spread in China, a major buyer and supplier of natural health ingredients. And the crisis has directly impacted the market for health ingredients. This is due to its relation to health and the agri-food value chain.
Welcome Issues surrounding food, health and nutrition have hardly been out of the headlines this year.

It is the complexity of these issues and many more that makes Food Matters Live so relevant.
Food Matters Live returns on October, at the Convention Centre, O2 and build your business through a range of tailored matchmaking opportunities.
Food Matters Live is pleased to unveil a bespoke, curated pavilion dedicated to showcasing the latest sustainable and nutritious food and drink innovations from around the UK. Who can apply and how does it work? UK start-ups who are less than two years old are invited to apply for a place on this prestigious pavilion. What makes it unique is that a panel of food and drink experts, involved in the buying process, will be reviewing all the applications and selecting the participants for the Future Brands Pavilion.
As well as an innovative concept that meets consumer demand in health and wellbeing, the judges will be looking for proof of commercial success to date to include the number of existing customers, marketing and distribution channels and future growth strategy. Every start-up will receive feedback on their application, which will help inform their future business development. Successful applicants will be invited to display their innovations as part of an attractive, purpose built pavilion designed by Food Matters Live.
A targeted marketing campaign will promote the Pavilion and run alongside a tailored matchmaking service provided by the Food Matters Live partnerships and hosted buyer team. With the rise in the number of start-ups, we also recognise the pressure on buyers to keep ahead of the most innovative brands coming on to the market. By taking this curated approach to creating a UK Future Brands Pavilion, we believe that we can add value to both communities — on the one hand, providing buyers with an efficient way to meet and do business with the brands of the future and on the other, helping ambitious, entrepreneurial start-ups succeed in a competitive market.
If you are a start-up food and drink producer and would like to apply for a place on this unique Pavilion, get in touch….
