More than £500,000 worth of deals were concluded at the second Fairway Foodservice ‘Meet the Member’ event.

Chris Binge-for-webOver the two days at Villa Park, Birmingham, the buying group’s 17 members came face to face with 38 suppliers in a speed dating style format. More than 100 new products and special offers were on view.

Income from the latest show bumps the total ‘Meet the Member’ income for 2016 up to more than £1.2 million.

Group chief executive Chris Binge (pictured) said: “The feedback from suppliers and members has been incredibly positive. We strive to ensure the event works well for suppliers and for members and there is a real business focus.

“Suppliers want to introduce new products and sell more existing products and members want to keep up to date with new trends and buy stock ‘on offer’. It really is a win-win.

“You can’t stand still in foodservice, and these get-togethers are crucial to support our members in their continued growth.”
