Frozen Food Conference plans finally off ice


The British Frozen Food Federation’s (BFFF) Frozen Food Business Conference makes a welcome return on Tuesday 20 September at Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon.

Following a two-year pandemic-induced hiatus, the flagship BFFF networking event relaunches with former England Rugby Union star and Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year, Maggie Alphonsi, as the keynote speaker.

Delegates will be treated to a packed schedule covering six key topics: Economy, Retail, Foodservice, Consumer Behaviour, Sustainability and Showcase – with talks from both analysts and brands.

Rupert Ashby, newly appointed CEO of BFFF, said: “At a time when many people in the food industry are tackling the effects of inflation, labour shortages and rising energy prices, the conference is a great opportunity to take some time out and look to the future. Our carefully crafted programme covers a range of relevant topics to ensure that attendees can get a true understanding of the opportunities and challenges the frozen food industry faces.”

Along with our thought-provoking speaker schedule, the exhibition area will be a hive of activity with product samples and demonstrations.”

Speakers at The BFFF Frozen Food Business Conference include Andrew Selley, CEO of Bidfood, Blonnie Whist, insight director at Lumina Intelligence and Thomas Lye, prepared food category director at Tesco.

Mr Ashby added: “The industry has made great use of communication technology since the start of the pandemic but there’s no substitute for getting out there and having face to face conversations to learn from, build rapport and connect with colleagues and peers. The team has put in an incredible amount of work behind the scenes and I’m very much looking forward to it.”

Day ticket and dinner packages are available now via the BFFF website, with preferential rates for BFFF members. Limited exhibition spaces are available and can be booked by contacting [email protected].
