lunch 2018! At London’s ExCel


Life doesn’t stop, and neither do your customers – whether you’re hearing the faint whisper of “on the move, on the go, take away”, you need to keep up. And what better place to do it than at the leading food to go trade show, Lunch on 20-21st September!

One of our personal favourites, it hosts a plethora of brands all under one roof, spanning across baking, confectionery, sandwiches to coffee (of course), soft drinks and alcohol. As well as perusing the food and drink stands, you can also brush up on the latest innovation in ingredients and packaging. Not only that, if you’re into all things tech, you can see the latest array of equipment, EPOS and online ordering systems. Call this the one-stop shop show for anything food and drink on the move.

Whilst you’re there, make sure you take a trip to the innovation section – it showcases the most innovative food to go products launched in the last 12 months. If you’re visiting the show on day 1 then you can have your chance to vote for the winners. Not going to be there until day 2? Don’t worry, you can see the live pitches from the finalists and hear who is going to be crowned this year’s winners.
