About the Event

The Conscious Consumer

Technology is changing and so is our appetite to eat better.

There is an obvious connection between what we eat and our health. How we connect evolving technologies to help us find the right foods is less obvious. Health-e-Hack invites you to explore innovative ideas that enable us to better serve The Conscious Consumer. We are calling for all creative minds to join us in creating the next big revolution to grocery shopping! If you think you have the next big idea, we want you!

This will be the first ever hackathon hosted at a Food Matters Live Conference!
You don't want to miss it!

Speakers & Guests

Nick Lansley will be the master of ceremony for Health-e-Hack at Food Matters Live 2018. Nick has more than 25 years of experience at Tesco where he was part of a team that was the first to bring online grocery shopping to UK customers. He is now working as an innovation consultant to help bring pragmatic innovation techniques to companies.
