It hasn’t started yet but 2018 is already shaping up as a busy year for us here at Happerley HQ. The fun starts in the first week of January with the Oxford Farming Conference
, a great curtain-raiser to the new year and a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues from across the industry and hear from leading voices across the sectors. If you’re popping along and would like to know more about Happerley contact us on [email protected]
February 8th sees CEO Matt Rymer in York for the Find,Make,Buy Local
-Improving the Local Food Supply Chain conference Matt will be explaining how easy it is to validate provenance and how vital it is to regain the confidence of consumers. Tickets are free so if you’re a Yorkshire food business, do add your voice to the debate.
March kicks off with the global Food Fraud
Conference hosted by New Food in London. Matt will be joining a team of experts looking at blockchain solutions to food supply chains and how they can be successfully implemented for the good of the industry.
For spring, we’ll be taking the Food and Drink Expo
(April 16-18) by storm with a panel debate of Happerley members including Adam Henson, Phil Ponsonby and Peter Jinman talking about protecting provenance and why it’s so vital for a thriving farm and food industry. Adam also appears at the Farm Shop and Deli Show later the same day, in conversation with Richard Fox, discussing why it’s important for customers to understand where their weekly shop comes from, amongst other things.
If you’re attending any of the shows do join us; as we’ve seen by leading analyst reports, disclosure is becoming ever more critical for the farming and food industry. We’ll be rounding off our appearances with reports here on our news pages so if you can’t make it we’ll bring you the highlights.
