For 2023, FADNE Founder Chris Jewitt has released a calendar of monthly Drop Ins, at a different location across the region every month, to engage with local food and drink businesses.
“When we originally set up Food and Drink North East three years ago, we promised ourselves that we would never be a faceless organisation chasing revenue from our members,” says Chris.
“Instead, we said we’d work tirelessly to make sure we were available, constantly listening to the needs and challenges of the industry, and always looking to add tangible value to our ever growing community.”
Whether it’s to pull the levers of the FADNE network, connect you to opportunities, hear about your concerns or help you to find the specialist support you need to overcome your challenges, Chris will be all ears at these monthly Drop Ins!
“These informal chats and catch ups will provide a temperature test as to where you and our industry is at,” says Chris. “So, if you’re a part of the agricultural, food, drink, hospitality or manufacturing supply chain in the North East, please feel free to book a meeting. Coffee is on me!”
