The UK Future Brands Pavilion is a new feature making its debut at Food Matters Live 2019 and will showcase a curated selection of the best and brightest food and drink start-up in the market.
This initiative allows UK start-ups the opportunity to get their brands and business proposition in front of an expert buyer panel featuring Sainsbury's, Sodexo, Pladis Global, Mintel, Grocery Accelerator and Cotswold Fayre.
Food Matters Live Director Briony Mansell-Lewis explained: "The UK Future Brands pavilion will select the most innovative and disruptive products set to transform the UK food and drink landscape.
"It is free to enter, and all applicants will benefit from invaluable direct feedback on their business plans from our expert panel of influential buyers, whether they are successful or not."
UK companies trading for two years and under are invited to apply, free of charge, for an exhibition space within this pavilion.
All applications will receive written feedback from the panel. Successful applications will then be invited to exhibit in the pavilion with a curated package including Meet the Buyer and both category and consumer insight reports.
Entries close on 12 July 2019, and the winners will be announced in the week starting 22 July. Apply now.
"This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for food and drink entrepreneurs from across the UK to get your brand on a high-profile platform, meet buyers and stand out from the competition," Mansell-Lewis concluded.
