Designed specifically to create collaboration within the food and drink community, Match Meet the Buyer allows you to pre-arrange 1-2-1 meetings with buyers and distributors of innovative ingredients and/or food and drink products.

Open to both Food Matters Live visitors and exhibitors, Meet the Buyer is the ideal platform for companies that are looking to:

  • Get tailored feedback from industry experts
  • Secure retailers or distributors
  • Maximise on time and spend
  • Get ahead of the latest market trends
  • Perfect their sales pitch
  • Make new valuable connections

Access to both days of Meet the Buyer costs an additional £179 for visitors or £149 for exhibitors (+VAT)*.

*Registration is non-refundable. For more information please see terms & conditions

Make the most of your time: Securing just one buyer meeting can often be difficult, let alone multiple. Meet the Buyer brings the contacts you want to meet to one place, allowing for maximum meetings across the two days.

We’re here to help: Our partnerships team not only recruits the best buyers and distributors looking to invest in fresh innovations – they’re also available before and during the show to help your meetings run as smoothly as possible.

Simple, online booking system: Use Delegate Select to arrange meetings with buyers, distributors and other participants; customise your profile and schedule; and download your itinerary – all before you get onsite.
