The festival, which takes place on November 12th and 13th at the Institute of Directors in London, was created to offer start-ups help to bolster their footing in the UK food and drink community. At the event entrepreneurs can pitch products to Whole Foods Market, Fortnum & Mason and online retailer Not On The High Street

As well as the chance to pitch, visitors can attend insightful talks from the likes of Tom Newton from Graze, can browse the offerings of 24 exhibitors at The Marketplace, can put questions to industry professionals at The Advice Bar, receive instant feedback on their products from experts at The Tasting Table and can attend a drinks and networking after party.

Jason Gibb, Bread & Butter co-founder said, “We’re bringing together a dream team of speakers – food and drink entrepreneurs who have been there and done it. The people that can share their experience on how to build a food business, how to pitch to a retailer or how to export their products. We’ve also signed up key retailers Whole Foods Market, Fortnum & Mason and Not On The High Street Street to run pitching sessions, where they can meet the exciting producers coming along to the festival. All in all it’s a must-visit event for anyone wanting to learn from an outstanding line-up of experts all in one place who are happy to share their knowledge.”
