Food is an essential part of our life – our days start with food and ends with it. The habits of nutrition are changing rapidly because of the changes in people’s lifestyles – starting from philosophical reasons to health problems. As people are becoming more focused on their eating habits, the industry should not only try to answer those needs but be one step ahead and suggest new products, delivery ways, and be more sustainable.

The workshop is dedicated to tackling the most common challenges the food system deals nowadays:

  1. Consumer Behaviour;
  2. Consumer Trust;
  3. Digitalization;
  4. Food Loss and Waste;
  5. Food Production;
  6.  Food safety and Quality;
  7. Food Technology;
  8. Health and Nutrition;
  9. Learning and Development;
  10. New Product Development;
  11. Sustainability.

The workshop will be led by CMO of Talent Garden Lithuania, one of the founders of the training academy and CEO of Buro Artūras Bulota:
