FoodNavigator is on the hunt for trailblazing, entrepreneurial start-ups to pitch their food and nutrition innovations at this year's Food Vision London. 

Submit your story​ ​and tell us how you’re tackling some of the industry’s greatest challenges and meeting the needs of today's consumers, and win a spot at Food Vision. 

Held in London from 1 to 3 March 2017 at the exclusive Northumberland House in central London, Food Vision is organised by William Reed, the publisher of FoodNavigator and NutraIngredients, this industry event brings together CEOs, academics and top researchers for three days of interactive conferences and networking sessions on how to drive sustainable growth and profitability in global nutrition, food and beverage markets.

You will share the stage with our panel of entrepreneurs, incubation and investment specialists to get feedback on your product, packaging and strategy, and will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice from the panel and from the Food Vision community.

All submissions will be evaluated by the editorial teams of FoodNavigator and NutraIngredients. Last year’s winners were Scottish start-up Nutrifiz which impressed judges with its effervescent wheatgrass supplement; Brussels-based Zendo focus drink which promised to shake up the energy drinks category and London firm Wheyhey protein ice-cream.

Since taking the stage at Food Vision in Cannes, France last year these companies have gone from strength to strength, with Zendo securing distribution contracts at major French retailer Carrefour and Nutrifiz selling in leading UK health food chain Holland & Barrett.

Apply now for the chance to rub shoulders with senior industry figures such as Gil Horsky, global innovation platform leader at Mondelēz International; Aihui Ong founder and CEO of Love With Food; Erin Boyd Kappelhof, managing partner at Eat Well Global and Andrew Steele, head of product development at DNAFit.

This unique opportunity will allow you to engage with industry leaders and shape the debates affecting the global food industry.

  • A place on the Food Vision programme: participation in the Trailblazer session
  • Access to the full programme including all presentations and networking sessions
  • Accommodation at Club Quarters Hotel​ (1 & 2 March)
  • Coverage in FoodNavigator​ / NutraIngredients
