Open Innovation in the Food and Drink Industry

November 27th, 2009 | Category: Networking,Open Innovation

I attended and presented at a very good conference yesterday, run by the Food and Drink Innovation Network. The topic being discussed was Open Innovation. There was some really good materal presented, although I was sad to have missed some of the afternoon speakers after some low life stole my wallet during the lunch break. In the morning the main vector of questioning was “prove it works – show me examples of breakthrough Open Innovation in the food and drink industry” (by the wayĀ a good example here is Nespresso) but in the afternoon theĀ focus shifted towards “how do I make it work for my organisation?”Ā Speakers included Mike Hield from IXC-UK, Tim Jones from Future Agenda, Paul Isherwood from GSK, Kelvin Pitman from Crown Packaging and Ian Noble from Pepsico. Full presentations will be on the FDIN website next week.
