Free “Meet the Experts” event for food and drink businesses
16 January 2023 : Council news, Business
A survey showed that Somerset food and drink businesses are facing a number of challenges – from concerns about food regulations and labelling to issues with training and supply chains.
In response, Somerset West and Taunton and Sedgemoor District Councils have teamed up to organise a series of events specifically designed for businesses in the food and drink sector.
The next event is “Meet the Experts food and drink workshops” at J25 Holiday Inn on Thursday, 9 February 2023, between 10am and 1pm on a drop-in basis.
Businesses will have the opportunity to attend expert and industry specialist workshops – Photography, Intellectual Property, Allergens Food Labelling and procurement – but these need to be booked in advance via the councils Eventbrite page.
There will also be technical and legal advice from Environmental Health and Trading Standards Officers as well as a valuable chance to network with other businesses. Previous experience has shown that this is an excellent way to create individual new supply chains and markets.
Participants are asked to bring literature and marketing materials.
