            It is estimated that the food and drink industry in Northern Ireland is worth a staggering £5 Billion per year. It represents an immense growth opportunity for Northern Irish business, but what are some of the biggest trends which could impact growth? From Brexit's impact on labour supply and trade routes with the South, to the government's obesity strategy leading to taxes and reformulation of food. From technological innovation such as nano-technology and blockchain to the Circular Economy influencing how businesses manage waste and packaging. Join us as we discuss how these changes are shaping one of Northern Ireland's biggest export markets.
            Whilst there are challenges ahead, the opportunity to influence the shape of the future is greater than ever.
