Food & Drink Business LIVE Breakfast Forum: The Convenience Culture

Consumer convenience has reached mega-trend status, and in the Australasian FMCG market it’s playing out in a proliferation of ready meal options and mini-meal snacks and drinks. At the upcoming Food & Drink Business LIVE breakfast forum, taking place on 12 October at The Arts Centre in Melbourne, we will explore how The Convenience Culture is influencing new product development and packaging choices made by food and beverage manufacturers.

Staged in Melbourne for the first time, our proven and popular LIVE event format will provide insights into the latest consumer lifestyle and behaviour trends and take a look at how brand owners are responding with innovative, health-centric products.
