The programme will delve into this manufacturing sector showcasing the innovations making nutritious food accessible for all.



Food and Drink: Powers Our Nation’ will be hosted by highly renowned chef and presenter Monica Galetti and will feature organisations that are playing their part when it comes to food system innovation. Those helping to shape the way we eat, the technological solutions that are making food manufacturing more efficient and those helping to cut emissions within the industry.

Launching March 2024, ‘Food and Drink: Powers Our Nation’ will combine expert interviews, news items and reporter-led sponsored editorial profiles. The programme will be promoted by the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) and The Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) as thought leaders within the industry- as well as IFE, International Food & Drink event.

Nina Harrison-Bell, Head of ITN Business said: “By showcasing the impact the innovations within this vast sector have, our programme aims to delve deep into the solutions helping our food systems thrive now and for many years to come.’
