The international launch of Food On The Edge 2019 took place on the evening of Monday May 20 at Robin Gill’s newly-launched Darby’s restaurant in London.
Food On The Edge is a two-day event that involves 15-minute talks, panel discussions, masterclasses and networking activity. This year's event will also feature an artisan food village that will showcase Irish food produce.
"Delighted To Launch"
Founder and symposium director of Food On The Edge JP McMahon said, "We are delighted to launch Food On The Edge 2019 in London this year and to use this event to announce our new Food On The Edge Ambassador Programme. Each year, we receive a large number of inspirational applicants hoping to partake and speak at Food On The Edge. These applicants are very often doing wonderful things for Irish food and developing the industry in their own way. While we have limited capacity of speaking slots, we wanted to do something to acknowledge these food champions. I hope this initiative will widen the reach of the Food On The Edge and act as its legacy into the future, eventually expanding onto a global scale.”
