The European Pizza and Pasta Show (EPPS) is one of the ultimate engagement channels for sellers and buyers in the European pizza and pasta industries. The show took place this year on the 13th – 15th of November 2018 at Olympia in London

The event is aimed at matching the interests and needs of the dynamic market and creating unparalleled deep, lasting relationships, providing mutual value for all industry stakeholders.

EPPS is an industry specific B2B event with a real impact on businesses, from increased revenues to shortened sales cycles, to heightened brand sentiments and buzz on social media. Organised with the exclusive support and in association with the PAPA – Pizza Pasta and Italian Food Association, the event attracted over 150 exhibitors and over 3,000 attendees.

Heather, invited by the organisers joined a panel discussion from 12:40 - 13.30 the 15th November 2018.

The topic of the discussion was:

CHANGING TRENDS IN CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR AND HOW THIS AFFECTS THE INDUSTRY

  

Joining Heather, the other panel guests comprised of:
Gareth Nash, Consumer Insight Director, MCA Insight

Tim Barclay, Co-Founder, Purezza, Food Product Developer, Coop*

Adrian Boswell, cheese buyer and Deli and food to go concessions, Selfridges

Randy Liebowitz, PepsiCo

  

The panel had  a very thought provoking discussion covering the rise of healthy dining at a reasonable price, food-to-go dining, meeting new demands, vegan sections on restaurant menus and product range and finally the current expectation to eat out any time, any place, anywhere.

 

Following on from the initial discussion there was a lot of  audience participation with Q and A with the panel.

The audience then took to their social media platforms

“Keep up the food work heather, everyone needs educating, even I’m still learning!”

 “That was a fun panel full of insight!”

 “Thanks for being involved, we are so excited about what’s to come”

“You are doing a great job promoting the plant-based lifestyle heather”

 

The organisers said:

 

“thank you Heather for coming and educating !”

VBites also had a large presence at the show and served a selection of samples across their award winning range from their show piece catering Airstreem truck, over the duration of the 3 days.
