Food-to-Go Conference 2016

Take advantage of the Food-to-Go opportunity

With limited growth in grocery retail, it’s no surprise that more and more businesses are turning their attention to the £16bn food to go market. Over the next five years, growth will top 35%, how can you tap into the potential of this dynamic and rapidly shifting sector?

Why attend IGD’s Food-to-Go Conference?

1. Channel deep-dive: build food to go into your commercial strategy

  • With a further £5bn worth of sales up for grabs over the next 5 years, food to go is a channel you can’t ignore. What does the market include and who and what is driving growth?

2. Fast track success by networking and learning from those who’ve already got started

  • Hear how leading manufacturers such as Greencore, Adelie, Bakkavor, Natures Way Foods, Propercorn and Coca-Cola are putting F2G at the heart of their future growth
  • Meet and engage retailers from Spar, BP, Compass, Pret a Manger and M&S

3. Get a clear vision of what success and best practice looks like

  • How is collaboration different in Food to Go and how should you go about getting started?
  • How will shopper needs change in the future and how can you capitalise on this?
  • What trends from around the world will shape the future of the sector?


Recognising the clear potential, IGD’s new Food-to-Go Conference on 22 November asks, ‘Are you fully exploiting the food-to-go opportunity?’
