The first 2018 edition of FDF World magazine is now live

This year, we start the conversation with Mövenpick’s Vice President of Development for Europe and North Africa, Amir Lababedi. Charged with ramping up the hotel and resort management firm’s European expansion, Lababedi reveals how the UK is a key area of focus for the company and industry at large.

Sustainability has been a huge talking point for the food and beverage industry and so we talked to Joe Frances, Vice-President of Sustainability at Coca-Cola European Partners, to find out more. He tells us how his team is spearheading sustainability awareness with ‘This Is Forward’ - a campaign which aims to set the benchmark for positive action by the industry to alleviate its impact on the environment.

Speaking to CEO and founder Peter Fedchenkov, we also explore how Russian startup INS is disrupting supply chain dynamics with its unique blockchain-fuelled, direct-to-consumer solution.

At FDF World, we’re also taking a closer look to see which top ten food and beverage giants have taken a slice of the lucrative soft drinks industry.

On top of this, we’ll be rounding up the top industry events across the globe for this calendar year.
