Description

Want to understand how the £88bn UK Food Service sector works and how you can win business? Come and hear from people who have made a career in this poorly understood end of the food and drink market as well as brands that have won business for their products.

Introducing Discover Something New: a series of events which help lift the lid on the rapidly changing Food and Drink industry. These events are dedicated to inspire your business journey and create a community of like minded ambitious brands.

This month's event will kick-off with an overview of the market from Christopher Faulkner, who after 30 years in the Food Service industry set up 'The Food Service Expert' to help young brands find their place in this market. Christopher ran the food operation for a pub group and a restaurant division within Allied Domecq before moving to the supply side where he has worked for Booker Fitch (now Bidfood), Universe Foodservice, Hays Logistics (now Kuehne & Nagel) and Brakes.

After delivering an in depth overview of the Food Service market, Christopher will lead a panel discussion with exciting young brands who will share their experience in the Food Service market. Panel participants include Charlie Platt who is currently the Head of Sales for Manilife Peanut Butter. Charle has worked across foodservice/ wholesale in Sales & Procument for the likes of Greencore, Bidfood & Others. Since leaving Bidfood's corporate procurement team in early 2018, Charlie has spoken with over 70 London based SME's helping them to understand their foodservice and wholesale commercial strategy. Charlie is always looking to meet new brands and is happy to help where he can.

You're welcome from 1800, the event will start at 1830 and run for 60-90 minutes followed by networking with fellow foodie founders.
