Food and drink companies will be given some food for thought at a conference designed to show them how they can grow their businesses through innovation and exporting.

The fourth annual ‘Appetite for Growth’ conference, hosted by the Northern Ireland Food and Drink Association (NIFDA) and supported by Bank of Ireland and Invest NI, will be held on September 23 at Craigavon Civic Centre,

The free event will provide an interactive forum for manufacturers and producers to engage with industry leaders and receive insights and tips.

Executive director of NIFDA Michael Bell, said, “Food is generally falling in price partially due to weakening commodity markets but also as a result of severe price competition between supermarkets, leading to deep discounting.

“Therefore, growing internationally diversified export business is crucial for local food companies wishing to survive and thrive in such a challenging operating environment.”
