FEAST events are for businesses in the food and drink sector.  These informal and informative sessions offer discussion, expert advice and the opportunity to meet and share best practice with like-minded businesses.

  • Do you have a food or drink product that you are keen to showcase?
  • Are you looking to connect with other food and drink businesses to share knowledge and best practice?
  • Could you benefit from expert advice to help you develop and grow your business?

If the answer is yes to any of the above, then why not join us for a FEAST networking and product event on 10 October in Derby?

This informal evening networking event is a great opportunity to celebrate the fantastic range of produce made in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. You can also meet new contacts and develop business relationships.

Food and Drink manufacturers also have the opportunity to bring along samples and literature to promote their products. Please note: It is the responsibility of the producer to ensure that any product samples are transported in a suitable manner, safe to eat and have clear labelling to highlight any allergens.

This event is kindly hosted by BEAR Coffee Company
