Event Details

What is the Global Food Forum?

The Department for International Trade (DIT), formerly UKTI, has arranged for buyers from approximately 15 different countries to visit the UK on October 13th to meet UK Food & Drink companies that are interested in starting or increasing international sales in these markets. There will also be breakout sessions on specific markets and several other crucial international trade issues.

 Why take part?

This is an exclusive chance for UK companies from the East of England to showcase their products for potential new markets and talk directly with relevant buyers.

 What you will experience?

To make sure that you get the most out of the day we will be working with the visiting buyers to perform a matching service. First, we will ask you which countries you would like to meet from the list below and then we will send the list to the buyers to select. Finally, we will send you the list of confirmed meetings for your final acceptance. By performing this matching service we can make sure that the day is optimised for you to meet the right buyers.
