Seminar: Understanding the future free-from trend

Time: Tuesday 17th November, 10:30 – 12:00

Description: Last year more than half of the UK population brought free-from products (Kantar Worldpanel, 2014). Gluten-free remains the biggest area of growth but still only accounts for 0.1% of the UK grocery market (Mintel, 2014). This session will assess the current market, consumer demand and drivers for growth across free-from, allergy and intolerance products. Industry experts and analysts will also assess future opportunities for manufacturers and the impact of the new Food Information for Consumers regulation.
