Collaborate and innovate with Match: the new matchmaking service from Food Matters Live – London’s ExCeL on 21-23 November

Are you looking to meet buyers from retail and foodservice? Perhaps you want to build business relationships with UK food and drink manufacturers, or research partnerships with academia? Maybe you are eager to take your emerging brand to the next stage - or keen to find a new export market?

For access to these and many other business connections, take advantage of Match – a new matchmaking service being offered to visitors and exhibitors at this year’s Food Matters Live.

Operating from London’s ExCeL during Food Matters Live on 21-23 November, Match provides an opportunity for professionals across the food and drink industry to use the three-day event to identify potential partners and pre-arrange meetings with them.

Food and drink manufacturers, ingredients suppliers, retailers, distributors, importers, exporters, packaging experts, health professionals, innovative start-ups, High Street names and many others from the UK and internationally are expected to take advantage of the service.

A dedicated Meet the Buyer programme is also available for buyers from retailers and foodservice providers who are looking for innovative companies to meet their business needs at home and overseas.

The matchmaking service is built around key themes, from better-for-you food and drink manufacturing, healthy snacking and natural and functional ingredients, to future food technology, new business models, packaging design, marketing and brand management.

In addition, a Premium Business Base offers visitors their own private meeting area that can be used to arrange meetings with new and existing contacts.

Food Matters Live celebrates food innovation as you’ve never seen it before with the launch of 10 new exciting Awards.

Food Matters Live is delighted to announce these new Awards to celebrate inspiring innovation and creativity from across the food and drink industry.

Open to exhibitors and registered visitors, the Awards reflect the themes at the heart of Food Matters Live.

Food Matters Live is the only three-day event that brings together a cross-sector community of passionate, industry experts – those at the cutting-edge of innovation - at London’s ExCeL on 21-23 November .

By launching these new Awards, Food Matters Live will shine a spotlight on the innovation behind the growth of ever healthier, natural and organic, sustainable and ‘better for you’ food products defining the future food and drink landscape.

The categories for the new Awards are:

Each entry requires a summary showcasing why it fits the category, what is particularly distinctive, innovative or creative about it and the commercial success achieved so far, along with images or video clips to illustrate.

Briony Mansell-Lewis, Director, Food Matters Live, said: “We are delighted to launch these awards to celebrate inspirational innovation across the food and drink supply chain and provide a valuable platform for the industry to come together and recognise outstanding achievements and entrepreneurship.”

The cost of entering is £234 per entry (inclusive of VAT) or £114 (inclusive of VAT) for a business of less than two years old.
