Innovation.  Finally, we welcome Russ Shaw, the founder of leading technology firm Global Tech Advocates and former VP of Skype.

The Future Food Awards have been launched by The FoodTalk Show and Speciality Food magazine, to highlight the best innovative food and drink producers in the UK.

William Chase said: “I’m delighted to be on the panel for the Future Food Awards 2019. Starting up a new business takes hard work, determination and a big dose of brand magic to set you apart from the crowd. I can’t wait to learn about the latest innovation within each category and most importantly, each brand story.”

 “The UK and Ireland have become hotbeds of food and drink entrepreneurship,” said John Stapleton. “The Future Food Awards represent the pinnacle of this innovative industry and I am delighted to be involved.”
