Michael will be sitting alongside a host of other top-name food business owners on the panel, including John Shepherd, managing director of Partridges and Paul Hargreaves, chief executive of Cotswold Fayre.
The New Producer Awards, run in association with Bread & Butter, aim to shine a spotlight on the exciting new producers currently invigorating the food and drink sector, and offer promotional support both within the magazine and online, as well as the opportunity to get exciting new products in front of renowned retailers, distributors, consultants and magazine editors.
Michael Weber said, “The New Producer Awards insure a greater chance of success for start-up businesses and emerging brands by building sustainable and lasting partnerships that can maximise growth. Many of the suppliers that will enter the awards could be the creator of the next big thing, and Whole Foods Market prides itself on curating the most exciting products.”
Entries for the New Producer Awards are open until 28th July 2017. For more details about the awards visit specialityfoodmagazine.com/awards.
