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 on-the-go snacks and drinks.

PKN's sister brand, Food & Drink Business is hosting a LIVE breakfast forum, taking place on 12 October at The Arts Centre in Melbourne, which will explore how The Convenience Culture is influencing new product development and packaging choices – from pouch formats to ready meal packaging solutions and single serve sachets – 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 product innovation.

Speakers and panellists will include market research experts and executives from Australian food and beverage companies, among them Laura Demasi, director of of Roy Morgan Reasearch, Simone Cote, GM Marketing & Innovation, SPC and Nicole Mahler, founder and director of start-up ready meal company Delicious Foods Australia.

The event is endorsed by our industry partner the Australian Institute of Packaging, with content developed in partnership with PKN.
