Luigi Bonini, SVP of Innovation at Starbucks, Joins Our 2018 Trends Event

Luigi Bonini, senior vice president, Global Product Innovation for Starbucks, is joining us at this November's Trends Event in London to share the thinking, ideas and concept behind the Starbucks Reserve Roastery just weeks after Europe's first Reserve Roastery opens in Milan.


The trends event is an annual gathering of industry names in London to discuss and hear from a host of thought-provoking speakers on trends from the food and drinks industry. Find out more about the event here.


Luigi leads product development and innovation for the company's food and beverage categories, including U.S. Retail, CPG, Tea, Evolution Fresh, as well as the Roastery and Reserve stores. Prior to joining Starbucks, Luigi gained more than 20 years of experience in product innovation in the food industry with some of the world's most iconic brands.


He will be a great addition to the line up of inspirational and thought-provoking speakers at the Trends Event 2019-20 who will truly bring trends to life, relevant for all aspects of the food and drink industry.
