Meet the Buyer event 2018

With growing demand for local, traceable food and drink, over 100 industry leaders came together to talk about the importance of supporting local produce.

Funded and developed by West Sussex County Council to support the county’s food and drink producers, the event brought together buyers from across the UK with some of the best West Sussex producers, who showcased their wares aiming to find new customers from retail, wholesale and hospitality businesses.

Building up to the event, a series of workshops were held for West Sussex food and drink producers to help them gear up effectively to sell, covering everything from pricing and identifying the right customers, health and hygiene procurement rules to marketing and packaging.
