We’re pleased to announce the date of the official launch of The Bath & West’s Food & Drink Business Network as Tuesday 13th February.
In line with the Society’s ambitions to support the sector, we have created a brand new opportunity for regional businesses within the food & drink sector to network and grow.
The Food & Drink Business Network aims to provide business and networking support through a range of activities to help businesses thrive and grow – simply, it will provide the opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience, peer to peer.
Working with partners from across the region, we see the network’s members having access to a range of business support tools that will address the specific issues that affect growing food & drink businesses. From our initial conversations with businesses, we know that support with marketing and branding ideas; access to new markets, including exporting for the most ambitious businesses; providing guidance on access to funding, VAT implications and other financial issues; regulatory and legal implications of managing a food & drink business and most importantly the opportunity to network with like-minded businesses are all critical.
We would like to encourage all regional food & drink businesses to be a part of this exciting new initiative and explore the opportunities available with other like-minded businesses, enabling the network to grow for everyone’s advantage.
Please do get in touch if you would like to register your interest in becoming a member of the group or feel that you can contribute to the group in any way, and please pass this invitation on to anyone you think may be interested.
