Experts in PR. Marketing, Product Development and Business Consultancy will be holding one-to-one consultancies with people who are considering setting up a food business. There will also be an opportunity to network with attendees, food pioneers and established food businesses. “Food has become part of the Fashion Industry” opines Jo Lynn, Food Consultant to JUF. “Last year’s pulled pork has now been replaced with smokey grills; the meat trend is as big as ever but dirty food is considered a bit provincial, if you are a hipster in Shoreditch. Persian meatballs are still hot, as is anything served from a street truck.”
Some of the award categories include More Than A Woman, Mother in Business and Food Extraordinaire. The Food Consultancy and tastings will take place from 5-6.30pm followed by the award ceremony and fashion show.
Potential food entrepreneurs who are thinking of setting up their own business or would like to showcase their products should attend the event. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call John on 020 7266 0636.
