Welcome to the 2019 Yearbook for Inside Food and Inside Drinks. In this issue, we'll be revisiting articles from across the year to focus in on the issues we thought most emblematic of the food and beverage industries in 2019.

We look at the problem of fruit waste and potential solutions, examine the sustainability crisis around palm oil, and learn about a beer being brewed from waste bread. 

In addition, we explore the future of cannabis-infused drinks, talk to the CEO of Grenade about the company's sports nutrition ambitions, and hear from industry experts about the state of non-alcoholic alternatives. 

All this, and much more, in the Inside Food and Drinks Yearbook.
