About the event

This workshop looks at how to develop your food & drink product for overseas markets.

What you’ll gain from the day

From cultural considerations to practical packaging guidelines, over the course of the morning we will look at your product and put together a step by step guide to help you make sure it makes maximum impact when you start selling overseas within the European Union.

Towards the end of the morning we will take a whistle stop tour of the legal and practical considerations to consider when selling overseas; an integrated part of your business development for 2019.

You will come away with a step-by-step pathway to internationalising your product for European markets as well as an electronic guide to starting to look for legal requirements for exporting food and drink into the EU.

A limited number of 1-2-1 sessions with the facilitator will be available after the morning session on a first come first serviced basis.
