Description

As the December elections are front of mind at the moment, Women In the Food Industry holding a debate and networking event at City Hall on the evening of 16th December on the politics of food. Our panel of women will cover subjects such as food poverty, slave-free food, food waste, gender politics in professional kitchens, sustainability and more.


By the 16th of December, we will know the results of the General Election and what this may mean for UK's position within or outside of Europe. Whatever the results and drama around the political parties, we believe that more and more people are becoming concerned or interested in the politics of food. It's hard not to think about the ethical, cultural and enviromental aspects of the food we eat and how it is produced, regulated, controlled and distributed.

We invite you to join us at the heart of one of London's most iconic & political buildings for an insightful and thought provoking discussion.
