Other topics in our presentations include the use of innovation (e.g. ICT, environmental technology, supply chain) for performance improvement and factors affecting quality and safety of fresh produce.

Our preparation includes a thorough research phase to present up-to-date information on trends, products, markets, key companies, and factors affecting market performance in a variety of food sectors.

We offer these services to our clients, as well as at international conferences.

The production of an article for an industry magazine with an extension of 2,000 words requires the following systematic approach:

(1) Searching at least 10 authoritative sources in the subject (including scientific and industry sources).

(2) Analysing the information sourced with scientific rigour and critical thinking

(3) Designing the document to present relevant sections, figure, tables and key messages.

(4) Editing and read-proofing the final version.
