Meet key Buyers and Distributors in Amsterdam – April 20 2017


Calling all new food and drink exporters

This is a great opportunity to develop overseas sales quickly using the power of the UK Government to reach buyers you could only dream of meeting otherwise.

The main event is a series of one-to-one meetings with major Food & Drink Buyers and Distributors in Amsterdam on April 20th. Beforehand you will have a full market briefing so you really are ready to close the sale, maybe on the day!

How it works?

Department for International Trade (DIT) has appointed a Dutch food & drink consultancy, Green Seed, to recruit relevant Distributors to match with East of England companies. There are 20 places on the programme for new exporters with strong potential to sell overseas. Complete your profile when you register for the event.
