Appetite for Engineering 2018: Preparing for change

26 February 2018

Is your company embracing change? If so would you be keen to share your trials, tribulations, challenges and successes with others in the food industry?

Some key take-home messages came through loud and clear from many of the presentations at the 2017 Appetite for Engineering event – Change is coming and the food industry needs to prepare itself for the future now.

So the 2018 event will focus on this need – through the use of automation technologies, more efficient use of energy, waste reduction, more sustainable enterprises, and importantly the need to upskill the workforce to ensure they are on-board with the change process. We are now looking for presentations for the 2018 Appetite for Engineering event, which will take place on 18th October at the MTC in Coventry. For more information about the event, and last years presentations, go to
