Women in the food business: redesigning food companies for sustainable nutrition and better livelihoods

07/05/2020 17:30 19:00

Food Thinkers Webinar

With Barbara Bray MBE, Alo Solutions Ltd

Food industry consultant Barbara Bray will present a vision for food businesses for the future, a future where businesses prioritise sustainable nutrition, environmental eating and transparent supply chains. She will give examples of companies who already have a focus on sustainable nutrition and of the work she now does supporting companies to take a healthier, more sustainable way.

Given the significant stress the current food system is now under as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Barbara will also describe what impact the on-going situation could have on our food supply and how businesses may adapt.

Barbara Bray is the Director of a technical services and nutrition consultancy, Alo Solutions Ltd, providing food safety advice, nutritional specification writing, technical development and training for fresh produce and food manufacturing clients. Barbara spent three years in the Ugandan agri-business sector followed by fourteen years in the UK chilled foods sector in food procurement, technical advice and management with Bakkavor, an international food manufacturer. She set up her consultancy business in 2014. In 2019, she was awarded an MBE for services to food and nutrition. She is also a director of the Oxford Farming Conference.

This talk will be followed by an online Q&A session, and will be chaired by Professor Corinna Hawkes.
