          With the vast impact of the horsemeat scandal throughout the supply chain, the limitations on the way foods can be marketed with health or nutrition claims, the growing concerns about origin and sourcing of ingredients and food labelling law changing completely from December 2014, the pace of change in the food sector has never been so fast.

          From the debate about sugar content, the reformulation of food and shrinkflation, to what Brexit will mean for the international food supply chain. Whether discussing the adoption of new technology, the challenges of sourcing workers or food information regulations, the pace of change in the food industry has never been so fast.
