"We will explore where better food sustainability starts. Is it in our farms, our schools, our homes, our colleges, our restaurants or our retailers?"
Rosalind Rathouse

For celebrations around International Women’s Day join Women In the Food Industry in shining a spotlight on leading female voices in food sustainability and the future of food. You can take part in discussions at how we can work towards a more sustainable future for ourselves and what we can teach people coming into the industry.

With organic Prosecco & soft drinks on arrival, there will be demonstrations by Ros Rathouse – founder of Cookery School at Little Portland Street (London’s most sustainable cookery school) of delicious dishes using “surplus” fruit and vegetables from Waste Knot, keynote talks and a panel discussion including Edwina Hughes Head of Engagement for the Cool Food Pledge at the World Resources Institute , Corinna Hawkes Director of the Centre for Food Policy at City, University of London, Stephanie Wood founder of School Food Matters , Catherine Flood Curator at the V&A who curated their hugely popular Food Bigger Than the Plate exhibition and Juliet Davenport, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Good Energy – a 100% renewable energy company with a mission to power a greener, cleaner future together.

At the end of the evening each attendee will receive a  goodie bag with sustainable samples from food & drinks companies including Belazu Ingredients Company.
