Here's what some of our past Trend Summit guests had to say about the event:

"What I love about the food people is that you get to sit down all day and it is really well organised. Many other conferences you have to rush from a to b and worry you might miss something, but here you just relax, listen and enjoy." - Tesco

"The day was brilliantly run, very smooth, the speakers were all very different but all inspiring. We use the trend book all of the time, all my team use the book all the time." - Greencore Group

"Thefoodpeople events are always very inspiring and thought provoking and shows us what we have to look at for development and innovation strategies for the future. Thefoodpeople has gone from UK to global, taking the trends in Australia and USA and how we can use them in the UK is very key." - Grupo BIMBO
