Event For North Wales Food And Drink Producers Announced

A new one-day expo that aims to promote regional food and drink in North Wales is due to be held at Bangor University in February.

Business News Wales reported that the expo is designed specifically to help “promote local produce to large-scale public sector catering services”.

The Mon Larder Public Procurement Expo 2020 will focus on sustainability and help food and drinks businesses in North Wales explain the benefits of using their services to buyers and influencers at local authorities, NHS organisations, universities, colleges and schools, and a range of other organisations in the public sector.

Martin Jardine, director of agri food at Grwp Llandrillo Menai and chair of Mon Larder, told the news provider that the expo will “give us a platform to showcase the fantastic products we have available here in Wales and to highlight how new technology is benefiting the sector”.

As well as bringing producers and buyers together, the expo will feature a number of speakers talking about a variety of topics relating to food and drink production and procurement.

Dafydd Gruffydd, managing director at Mentor Mon, said that networking is just one element of the event. One of its main aims is “helping organisations understand what’s available to them locally when they source food and drink for large-scale public sector catering”.

The food and drink sector in Wales is thriving, turning over a record £7.5 billion in 2019, Food Manufacture reported. The sector has beaten the government target of achieving turnover of more than £7 billion by 2020.
