On 17 July, London Food Link is bringing together the capital’s enterprising food growers and small-batch producers with sustainable chefs to Get Connected for Urban Food Fortnight 2017
To inspire you, you will hear success stories from enterprising community food growers in London Food Link’s Capital Growth network, small-batch food and drink producers, and ethical eateries that have taken part in previous years.
You will also have the chance to hear from, and chat with, food enterprise experts.
Speakers confirmed so far:
- Bread & Butter founder, Jason Gibb
- Growing Communities‘ head grower, Sophie Verhagen
- Sutton Community Farm production manager, Joris Gunawardena
- A surplus saving supremo from PlanZheroes
- Sustainable Restaurant Association supply chain consultant, Yeshna Mistry
- UnLtd social entrepreneurship manager, Rebecca Luff
…with more to be announced.
You will get to taste lovely local food from a range of urban producers, and plenty of time for networking to help you meet potential partners for this year’s Urban Food Fortnight (8-24 September), and hopefully forge longer term buyer/supplier relationships.
Our kind host, The Table Cafe will be laying on drinks and nibbles featuring the best of London’s local larder.
Whether you are an urban food grower, small batch producer, chef or restaurateur, this event is for YOU, so book now to get involved!
