Tasting the Future

A purpose and values driven consultancy which aims to transform food systems so they are sustainable, healthy, equitable and fair.

Tasting the Future was established in 2018 by me, its Founder and Director, Mark Driscoll. I am a confident, motivational and inspirational leader who is passionate about the need to transform food systems to address some of the most pressing social, economic, environmental and health challenges we confront in the 21st century. I use a food systems approach to support NGOs, intergovernmental organisations, funders and food businesses in strategy development, managing complex projects, stakeholder engagement, research and policy development.

Over 25 years’ experience of leading a diverse range of innovative sustainable food strategies, projects, and programmes

I bring together expert teams of trusted associates to deliver strategies, projects, policy and practice which can drive action for a healthy and sustainable food system.

I have over 25 years experience of leading a diverse range of innovative sustainable food strategies, projects and programmes for a range of organisations, including the National Trust, WWF-UK and Forum for the Future. I champion the concept of sustainable nutrition and manage a number of innovative, collaborative initiatives which catalyse action and innovation, working with funders, innovators, food and beverage businesses and civil society organisations.

I provide a wide variety of services including thought leadership, strategy development, project management, stakeholder engagement, desktop based research, food trends insights, facilitation & workshop services. I also provide expert subject matter talks/presentations on a range of sustainability trends and topics including regenerative agriculture, sustainable diets, plant-based innovation, food waste and sustainable commodities.

My clients include the Global Alliance for the Future of Food, WWF, The World Health Organisation, The European Commission, EIT Food, World Animal Protection, Compassion in World Farming, Eating Better,  The Food Foundation. M&S, McDonalds,  Quorn Foods and Dairy Farm International.

I donate 3% of income received to two food and agriculture charities – The Trussell Trust and Farm Africa.

Farm to Fork: Systemic Change is Key to European Food Security and Resilience

Rolling back the European Farm to Fork Strategy(F2F) to scale up intensive systems of food production, as some agri-food businesses argue, would not solve the current food crisis – It would move us even further away from a food system that is resilient to future shocks. The F2F strategy offers a unique opportunity to promote joined up policies that result in synergies for food security, production, sustainability, and health – it must not be weakened or abandoned.
