The Virtual Lunch Room

A Weekly Forum Sharing Perspectives on the Future of Food

If your lunchroom has been temporarily deserted, and your professional development calendar disrupted, join Sharon Natoli and her guests in The Virtual Lunch Room every Wednesday at 12.30pm, commencing 25th March.  

Each week Sharon will interview an expert guest to find out how Australia's food sector is tracking when it comes to creating a more sustainable future through food and innovation.

Bring your lunch, settle in, listen and contribute as much or as little as you like to the discussion as areas such as consumption, innovation, farming, trends and developments relevant to the local, national and global food sector are covered.

Format: The Virtual Lunch Room will be held on Zoom meetings.

To register for each, or all three, please do directly via Sharons Website
