 FEAST Derby Food and Drink Manufacturers Roundtable

Venue: East Midlands Chamber, 2 Victoria Way, Derby, DE24 8AN

Date: Thursday 10th August 2017

Time: 2pm – 4pm

Places: 15


Are you a food and drink manufacturer in the D2N2 area?

What are the issues faced by your business on a daily basis?

Are sector issues driven by location, economic or social factors?

What support would your business benefit from?


As part of the FEAST project, we are inviting food and drink manufacturers to join us and share their concerns, issues and ideas about key areas for development in the sector.  Your feedback will be used to help us shape the events activity over the coming months to help you further develop your business.

The FEAST project, which stands for the Food Enterprise Advisory Support Team is being delivered by the Food & Drink Forum and offers food and drink businesses a range of funded support services including technical support, business mentoring and access to grant funding.

Sector-specific events will be designed to share good practice and develop business partnerships, and we are giving you the opportunity to drive the agenda and highlight the issues that are most relevant to your business.

Places are limited to 15 per session and the format will be a roundtable discussion with questions about the sector, location and other factors that might be obstructing business growth.  Conversations will be open and informative and there will be opportunity to network and develop new business contacts.

If you would be interested in participating in the roundtable, book your place by emailing laura.winson@emc-dnl.co.uk  or call 0333 320 0333 ext 2270.

Food and Drink Manufacturers interested in benefiting from the services available through the FEAST project should call 0115 975 8810 or should email enquiries@foodanddrinkforum.co.uk to check their eligibility.
