Session title: Food Beyond the Pandemic
Session description: The COVID-19 pandemic has brought permanent changes and new opportunities to global packaged food markets. In her presentation, Karine Dussimon, Food and Nutrition expert at Euromonitor International, examines the legacies of this sanitary crisis for foods and how to thrive in this new environment. Alongside many working hours, many eating and food shopping occasions will stay in the home. Growing e-commerce will lead to shorter routes to consumers whilst faster delivery can help recreate impulse purchase behaviour. Supply chains need to be future proofed with a sustainability lens on. Meanwhile, consumers will embrace foods that support physical and mental resilience.
Date and time of the EMI session: 18 October 2022, 9.30-9.55 GMT
