UKWA to preview 100-page food logistics study at FOODEX

UKWA (the United Kingdom Warehousing Association) will preview Feeding London in 2030 – a study commissioned to explore future issues affecting food industry logistics in London – at FOODEX 2016 (18-20 April 2016, NEC, Birmingham).

Feeding London in 2030 includes:

  • A review of London’s demographics and its expected future population growth
  •   Information about London’s food and drink demand profiles and expected trends
  •   Hard facts on where the city’s population is currently fed and watered, at home, at work, during leisure time and ‘on the move’
  •   A quantified description of the role of the food and drink logistics sector, including a review of current physical distribution operations and property infrastructure provision
  • An assessment of future logistical challenges between now and 2030.

UKWA CEO, Peter Ward, says: Food security is a matter of increasing international concern and cities like London are also facing increased food distribution challenges, driven by rising population levels, changing lifestyles, shopping and eating patterns and diverse cultures, which all adds to stress on the urban infrastructure.

He adds: This important research will be essential reading not only for the logistics community, but also for grocery retailers, food and drink manufacturers and distributors, waste management companies, industrial property agents “ the list of stakeholders goes on and on.

In addition, it will be a vital document for the various Government agencies involved in defining the future policies and infrastructure designs that will allow goods to move to their destinations efficiently “ not only in London but in all large cities “ in the years to come.

Printed copies of the 100 page Feeding London in 2030 report can be pre-ordered from UKWA priced £790.00 plus VAT for non-UKWA member companies and £395.00 plus VAT for UKWA members. Email Sue Knief – – for details.
