Thousands of food-to-go operators and retailers from across the UK are expected to visit the lunch! show at ExCeL in London from September 20-21.

Styled as the ‘UK’s biggest food-to-go trade event’, it will feature 370 exhibiting companies and has announced also a record number of entries for its annual Innovation Challenge Awards.

Nearly 100 manufacturers and suppliers will be fielding new products or entries – many of which will be launching at the show.

That represents a 44% increase in new food, drink, foodservice equipment and tech innovations this year, up from 69 entries in 2017.

Voting opens for visitors at the Innovation Challenge from 10am on Thursday, September 20th, and will run until 4pm.  The exhibitors who secure the most votes will then be invited to ‘pitch’ their new innovations to the judges (and an audience full of top buyers) the following day.

The results will be announced at 4.15pm, on Friday September 21st.
