Peter also hosts webinars and meetings on food-related issues.

Before joining Informa in 2000, Peter worked on UK newspapers covering environmental, health, crime and political issues. Since then he has covered pharmaceuticals, medical technology, clinical trials, political lobbying, animal pharmaceuticals, and GM food in Europe.
