Description: Are you ready to attract new buyers?
West Sussex County Council has commissioned Natural Partnerships CIC to create an opportunity for the county's food and drink producers to meet and sell to new buyers. This Meet the Buyer Event will be held on 26th February 2018 in West Sussex - spaces are limited, so register below for your stand space!
Building up to this, we are managing four fully subsidised workshops to help you get ready to sell to new buyers.
You might make the most delicious product in the world, but a recent survey showed that buyers from retail, wholesale and hospitality businesses often find that local producers don't have everything ready to be able to sell to them, however good your product is. This might be that your pricing isn't quite right; you don't have the right certificates to meet their health and hygiene procurement rules; or your marketing and packaging needs to be more appealing to customers. Or perhaps you've got all this right, but just need a refresher to make sure you're bang up to date.
The following workshops have been designed, with input from local producers, to help make sure you are ready to sell - and that you are ready to sell to the right buyer for your business. Sign up for any or all of the following workshops now, but be quick places are limited!
Meet the Buyer Workshops - 22 and 29 January, 12 and 19 February and Main Event - 12-4pm, 26th February 2018
We can offer free stand spaces to up to 50 West Sussex food and drink producers at a special event, hosted in West Sussex, attended by dozens of buyers from retail, wholesale and hospitality businesses. This will be based on a first come first served basis.
