  • Kate Rivett

The food was incredible and the speakers inspirational from first to end.

  • Sophie Harding

The whole plant base, vegan element coming through today has given me lots to take away and inspiration for the future.

  • Mark Haynes

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, also bringing in the chefs of Theo Randall and Tom Brown today was very inspirational.

  • Hannah Sibley

The day was brilliantly run, very smooth, the speakers were all very different but all inspiring and food was great. We use the trend book all of the time, all my team use the book all the time.

  • Emma Cox

Really good, very informative, nice top line into what might be, quite inspiring.

  • Robert Pattinson

What I love about the food people is that you get to sit down all day and people bring you food, 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.
