2021 Trend Summit Speaker Profile 16 - The Food Foundation

Joining us at the 2021 online Trend Summit this month will be Anna Taylor, Dev Sharma and Yumna Hussain from The Food Foundation a registered charity working to create a sustainable food system which delivers health and wellbeing for all.

We invited Anna to speak on our behalf with Dev and Sharma at the recent COP26 about why the voice of youth is so important and how they've been working with policy makers and business to effect change in food and drink.

The talk covers the campaigns The Food Foundation and its young representatives have brought to life and presented to government, the struggles families faced during the pandemic to put food on the table for their children and how young campaigners reacted, plus insight into the recent national food strategy. The discussion also covers how food was, or wasn't, covered in detail as part of the conversation at the recent COP26.


Anna, Dev and Yumna of The Food Foundation join an exciting line-up of speakers at Tuesday's 8th Annual Food & Beverage Trend Summit. Other speakers include Farshad Kazemian, Founder & CEO of the Ethical Butcher; Sam Ashton-Booth, Development Chef at Tom Aikens Muse; Dr Giles Yeo MBE; Lucy White, Luminary Bakery Commercial Director; Ross Lusted, Owner and Chef at Sydney's in the spotlight restaurant Woodcut; along with thefoodpeople's own Charles Banks, Shokofeh Hejazi and Scott Fraser too.
