Virtual Food and Drink Meet the Buyer Event

Department for International Trade are delighted to announce this virtual meet the buyer event for food and drink producers in the Midlands.

By taking part, you will have the chance to virtually meet 1:1 with prospective buyers and show them what the Midlands has to offer – totally free of charge.

These sessions can be scheduled in to take place between 8th and 29th June 2022. Sellers will be able to engage with buyers interested in their products at a time slot which suits both parties.

Exclusive to Midlands producers this is a fantastic opportunity for you to showcase your products, and to build your brand reputation in some great overseas markets, by connecting with a range of overseas buyers who are all hungry to buy quality British produce.

There is a dedicated booking portal for this event which will allow you to request, book and take part in 1:1 meetings with the buyers and market experts. The 1:1 meeting booking frame will open from Monday 6th June 2022 at 9AM.

Representatives from supermarkets, agents and distributors will meet with companies on the day for what promises to be an action-packed event where new, prosperous relationships will be made.

Buyers will be present from the following markets:

• India
• Kuwait
• Jordan
• Saudi Arabia
• Israel


• France
• Belgium
• Netherlands
• Thailand
• Hong Kong
• Colombia
