Visitors to this year’s Speciality & Fine Food Fair will be among the first to learn about the Guild of Fine Food’s brand-new Membership Hub, an online platform designed to help the fine food world stay connected. Representing more than 1,300 food and drink businesses, connecting producers with independent retailers and providing them with a voice to both government and media, the Guild of Fine Food has now created this online community to give food and drink businesses 24-hour access to useful resources, breaking industry news and quick-fire Q&As.
With a comprehensive members’ directory offering details of independent retailers, producers and services, access to the School of Fine Food’s courses, charcuterie codes of practice for retailers and preferential rates for a range of other industry services, the Membership Hub is easy to use and navigate, making it a valuable resource for food and drink businesses in the UK and beyond looking to run their business more efficiently.
John Farrand, managing director of the Guild of Fine Food, explains;
“We are seeing a definite rise in new independent food and drink businesses entering the market and it is important that these companies are well represented and have all the information and support they need at their fingertips. This is where the new Membership Hub comes in, providing a 24-hour virtual meeting place, which members can access any time to share ideas and knowledge. We hope this new online hub will encourage businesses of all sizes to come together and help keep the fine food world as vibrant and exciting as ever.”
More information about the new Membership Hub can be found at the Great Taste Deli on stand 4280 at Speciality & Fine Food Fair, held at Olympia, London from Sunday 3 to Tuesday 5 September, where delegates can also peruse thousands of this year’s Great Taste award winning products and watch live cooking demonstrations.
