In Detail

Are you a business in the food and drink sector? Then join FinditinWorcestershire on Tuesday 18 July for our monthly breakfast event with a difference!

Following the success of last year's event, we will be bringing you the best of Worcestershire’s small, local producers and helping them link up with potential buyers.

Worcestershire is renowned as a home for food and drink and within its borders there are many award-winning establishments using locally sourced produce, so this time our theme will be 'How to become retail ready'. Hear about:

  • EHO: suitability of premises, inspections, production standards which need to be met
  • Brokerage: ways of using experienced and connected brokers to do your deal and ‘piggyback’ into retail
  • Packaging: costs of packaging, purchasing habits, labelling, design
  • Website: as a promotional tool
  • Insurance
  • Supply chain providers: costs, methods of working, cost to supply major retailers 

You will also hear from leading sector experts about business growth, how the supply chain works and how to present yourself to a potential buyer.

Support your local producers by tasting your way around the 'Food and Drink Hall' showcasing the very best of the county’s grassroots in food and drink and don’t miss the exceptional opportunity to speak with food and drink specialists – who visit the exhibition and network with attendees 

This is an event for all sectors, so book your FREE place below now. Our regular networkers are all welcome to come along and visit the exhibition of local produce.
