Hear from the founders of the food sector’s tastiest business success stories
Hear from the names behind some of the UK’s most successful food and drink brands, including Praveen Vijn, co-founder of Eat Natural and Guy Singh-Watson, founder of Riverford as they share stories on how they grew brands from their kitchen tables, got their products onto the supermarket shelves, developed a memorable brand and built a place for themselves in the hearts, minds and stomachs of a nation.
The UK’s food and drinks sector is going from strength to strength. Developments in street food and markets, pop-up catering, hospitality and myriad innovative new product launches and trends all contribute to our growing reputation as a nation of foodies. In 2017, consumer spending in the sector exceeded £219 billion with food and drinks exports worth more than £22 million to the economy. And with almost 7,000 micro, small and medium businesses active in the sector last year, there’s certainly no shortage of new brands eager to take a bite out of the market.
If you’re a small business owner in the food sector with big ambitions to take a piece of a profitable pie, don’t miss this opportunity to quiz our panel of foodie experts.
This event is followed by a networking reception where drinks and (of course) canapés will be provided. All parts of the building are accessible by wheelchair and induction loops are installed. Assistance dogs are very welcome.
