We are delighted to be attending the BFFF (British Frozen Food Federation) Conference and People Awards on Thursday 22nd February 2018 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.  

The conference is a leading networking event that brings together UK frozen food producers, wholesalers, importers, exporters, brokers and retailers. 


It is an exciting time for the sector, with the BFFF reporting £10bn growth opportunity available to the UK frozen food sector. The conference will host seminars to discuss the economy, Brexit, collaboration with customers, innovative thinking, success in exporting, market data, drivers, key trends and outline the opportunities for future growth in this dynamic sector.

The future growth of the frozen market will be profoundly affected by Brexit negotiations, so it will be most interesting to hear industry leader’s opinions about this important issue. Tariffs, access to labour, barriers to trade and securing ingredients remain in the hands of government negotiators. With manufacturing margins already tight and consumers wanting better quality for less money - it’s the perfect storm. Of course, it will also be fantastic to see the top talent of the industry be recognised by their peers at the People Awards, later on in the evening.To arrange an appointment during the conference, then please get in touch.  View Scott’s profile​
