The New Forest Business Partnership is committed to helping our local food and drink businesses to grow. Together with New Forest Marque and Go New Forest, we support our local food and drink businesses through access to funding, identifying food-grade premises, developing key industry-specific skills, networking and learning from each other.
The Food and Drink sector depends on sustained financial and business support. This annual Food and Drink Business Briefing gives us the opportunity to discuss the climate in which food and drink businesses operate, the pressures you are up against, and the support you need to succeed.
Book now to join us as we get all sorts of people around the table to discuss the future of the Food and Drink sector in the New Forest – from producers to public bodies, individuals to businesses.
Together, we will celebrate the New Forest’s Food and Drink successes, discuss our vision for local food and drink, learn a little more about sustainable food and drink and, of course, spend time together, networking and learning from each other!
