Gavin Rothwell

Content Session : Convenience as a Food Destination
1:30pm – 2:10pm


Gavin Rothwell is a food retail analyst who specializes in the food-to-go market. He supports businesses in creating better food experiences and has a passion for traveling the world to see the different food and retail aspects of different countries.


Based in the UK, Gavin focuses On Food Retail, Meal Solution And Fast Casual Insights across Europe. His particular specialism lies in helping businesses shape their food & drink concepts within convenience stores and supermarkets. A key way through which he supports his clients is through his immersive safari programme. These take place in leading cities across Europe, and enable his clients – both retailers and suppliers – to draw on best-in-class inspiration and execution from a range of food retail and other food & drink concepts. He frames his sessions to help his clients better understand trends, the future direction of the market, relevant innovation and ultimately their own opportunity to grow, but crucially with a combination of theory and practice.

Before setting up Food Futures Insights in 2019, he spent 14 years at the global grocery insights provider IGD, leading a range of projects and initiatives, including the flagship Retail Analysis service, and establishing both IGD’s global food-to-go insights stream and its European retail safari programme. Previously he’s also worked across the CPG sector as a consultant analyst at Datamonitor and led the food and homewares retailing team at Verdict Research, both in London.
