This workshop will bring together Sussex-based food and drink suppliers with local buyers interested in sourcing new and unique products for customers. We’ll provide practical examples of what local buyers want from their suppliers in order to create successful partnerships.
Getting your food and drink products into Brighton and Hove’s local cafes, restaurants, hotels and supermarkets can be a time consuming business. That’s why it’s important to have the right approach to increase your chances of success. This event provides the opportunity to learn from the experiences of local restaurants, hotels, distributors and food organisations.
We’ll also be providing buyers with the opportunity to meet local suppliers showcasing their products.
Suppliers will include a selection of fruit and veg, bread, dairy, meat, dry goods, desserts and alcohol products. Buyers will be from a range of sectors.
* We are currently looking for producers and suppliers to exhibit at the event. There will be no cost associated with this. Please register your interest with Jennie Burraway ASAP on 01273 719097 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
