05 April 2012

Branston, Direct Table Foods, Brammer and Waitrose are just some of the names pouring in as delegates sign up to attend this year's Appetite for Engineering 2012 event at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire on 12 June.

In the past A4E has attracted the cream of the food manufacturing world, and this year's event promises to be no different as delegates from food companies continue to pour in.

It's your chance to meet a star-studded line-up of speakers and have one-to-ones with the likes of Marks & Spencer, General Mills, Warburtons, The Jordans & Ryvita Company and Burtons Biscuit Company as we prepare for what is likely to be the biggest Appetite yet.

Appetite for Engineering has a reputation for outstanding presentations and a loyal sponsor base that includes companies such as Festo, ABB, Siemens, Ishida Europe, Rittal, Festo, the PPMA, and many others.

Companies that have spoken in the past include Sainsburys, Asda, Lloyds TSB, British Sugar, AB Agri, the National Skills Academy for Food & Drink Manufacturing, the Chilled Food Association, and many more.

But this year may just outdo them all. From the Food & Drink Federation to Greencore Cakes & Desserts, the food and beverage industry will certainly be out in force. John Quinn, a food technologist at Marks & Spencer, will talk about the need for innovating automation, and changing manufacturing methods.

To kick it all off however will be Jim Moseley, the MD of General Mills and current President of the Food & Drink Federation, who will talk about several issues affecting the food industry.

There will be panel debates at the end of each session. Each debate will feature speakers from that session, and if history is anything to go by, these question and answer sessions are usually the most lively of the day.
