Have you booked your place for the Food Export Conference?

Organised by British Baker in partnership with sister titles Food Manufacture and Meat Trades Journal, the event has been designed for businesses looking for their first export opportunities or wanting to grow existing overseas sales.

Held at Ardencote Manor, Warwickshire, on Thursday, 5 October 2017, it has been developed to arm delegates with advice about best practice from trade experts and British businesses enjoying success overseas.

Speakers include Adam Buckley, international sales director at Mr Kipling owner Premier Foods; Ed Wright, export director for Cranswick; Richard Clothier of Wyke Farms; and Jeremy Gilboy, managing director of Carrs Foods.

Topics will include financing, the help available from government bodies, legal issues, and how to identify the best overseas markets for your products.

The day comprises four sessions that will cover:

• Identifying your potential for growth

• How to organise your UK business to drive export

• World Trade Organization rules

• What can be learned from food and drink manufacturers trading profitably overseas

“British bakery businesses of all sizes are already enjoying strong overseas trade but there are many more opportunities to be embraced,” said Vince Bamford, editor of British Baker.

“This conference will give suppliers the chance to learn from those who have found export success, and help them identify potential markets for their own goods.”
