Rathbones to sponsor the 2016 City Food Lecture
Taking place on 16 February, this year’s City Food Lecture will be given by Christophe Jouan, chief executive of The Future Foundation, who will speak on the subject of ‘What, When and How will we be eating in 2025?’. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion, chaired by Margaret Mountford and featuring Judith Batchelar OBE, Professor Chris Elliott of Queen’s University, Belfast and food and health adviser and writer Lyndon Gee. A welcome address will be given by The Right Honourable the Lord Mayor of London.
The City Food Lecture is an annual, invitation-only fixture in the City of London and food industry calendars. Held at the Guildhall, the event is organised by the seven City of London livery companies whose roots are in the food industry – namely the Worshipful Companies of Bakers, Butchers, Cooks, Farmers, Fishmongers, Fruiterers and Poulters.
Rathbones is once again delighted to be supporting the City Food Lecture, which promises to be a fascinating exploration of the future of the food industry.
