1-2-1 Meet the Buyer sessions

Last year we first introduced 1-2-1 “Meet the Buyer” sessions, which gave exhibitors the opportunity to book up to 3 x 10 minute sessions with food and drink buyers committed to meeting producers in a formal and quiet area.

And with Brexit in the pipeline, large supermarkets and retailers are showing their commitment to sourcing locally produced British food, supporting local economies and reducing food miles. 

With over 150 meetings booked last year, standholders met 17 buyers from Tesco, Morrisons, East of England Co-op, Roys, South Lincs Food Service, Jarrolds, Makro, Zaks, Norse, Bakers & Larners, Booker, Centerparcs, City College, Vertas, ZSEA, UEA and Thomas Ridley Food Service.

Buyer sessions are booked on a first come first served basis so if you want to be in front of large supermarkets, food services, tourist attractions and more, you need to book your stand now – “Meet the Buyer” slots went very quick last year!

We are currently busy confirming this year’s list of buyers, if there’s someone you’d like to be in front of, challenge the team to track them down – we will do our best!
