Register now for the National Food and Drink Summit

Feb 22, 2023

Join Food and Drink North East (FADNE) and the National Innovation Centre for Rural Enterprise (NICRE) at an event for food and drink SMEs across England to network, share best practice, and explore opportunities for business growth.

The second National Food and Drink Summit organised by DEFRA will take place on Thursday 9th March at The Oval in London.

From 9.30am-4.30pm, food and drink SMES can attend workshops on finance, resilience, skills, innovation and routes to markets, as well as have an opportunity to network with like-minded businesses, regional networks and organisations that offer funding or support to SMEs.

NICRE will be running the resilience session and demonstrating its Resilience Toolkit which encourages businesses to think about their strengths and weaknesses, and helps them to identify their greatest potential future risks.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for any North East food and drink business that is wishing to explore opportunities for growth, and representatives from both FADNE and the NICRE will be attending the event.

We’d love to see as many North East businesses there as possible, so if you are interested please register for the event via Eventbrite, and feel free to drop us an email at either or to let us know that you’ll be going, so we can connect on the day.
