Victoria Albrecht and Nadia El Hadery, co-founders of London Food Tech Week, said: “Food is one of the most important economies in the world, and technology is essential to driving scalable, global and positive progress. With this event, we are looking to unite the food tech community for the first time, in a meaningful way, to forge vital food tech partnerships and foster collaboration for the good of all.
“Only by working together can we transform the world of food & agriculture.”
