Hear from the names behind some of the UK’s most successful food and drink brands, including Praveen Vijn, co-founder of Eat Natural and Guy Singh-Watson, founder of Riverford as they share stories on how they grew brands from their kitchen tables, got their products onto the supermarket shelves, developed a memorable brand and built a place for themselves in the hearts, minds and stomachs of a nation.
The UK’s food and drinks sector is going from strength to strength. Developments in street food and markets, pop-up catering, hospitality and myriad innovative new product launches and trends all contribute to our growing reputation as a nation of foodies.
In 2017, consumer spending in the sector exceeded £219 billion with food and drinks exports worth more than £22 million to the economy. And with almost 7,000 micro, small and medium businesses active in the sector last year, there’s certainly no shortage of new brands eager to take a bite out of the market.
