Foodex 2016 offers professionals from the UK’s food and drink processing, packaging and logistics industries a one-stop-shop to come together and explore solutions to these complex challenges.

Come and meet AECOM at stand S300, from 18 to 20 April 2016, at the Birmingham NEC. Contact us to schedule a meeting with the team or for more information.
