"Food Matters Live went above and beyond any expectations I had of the show. I was able to make connections with buyers that I thought were out of my reach and also received interest from other major companies that I didn't even realise would be interested in the product range my business has. I have already seen a huge uptake in sales from e-commerce platforms and my website (email literally wouldn't stop pinging) and I'm extremely excited to follow up on the leads and interest generated from my attendance. The "Meet the Buyer" area gave my business the opportunity to meet with companies that I hadn't considered as customers before and so far, we've been impressed with the result. I highly recommend the show to anyone that has innovation within their product to showcase. Will be back again next year!"

Lizzy Hodcroft, Founder, The Sweet Beet UK

"The 2017 Food Matters Live was our first really big trade event and we will definitely be back next year. We had great interest from buyers and have done some good business as a direct result of being at the event. The organising team are superb and everything ran like clockwork, a top event and any new brand in the sector should get themselves to Food Matters Live next year.’"

Allan Moffat, Marketing Director, SkinnyBrands Ltd

"It’s a combination of 2 things which makes FML such a good exhibition for TEA REX 2 years running: Firstly, thought-leadership and a truly inspiring program of events which attracts the type of visitors for us to meet. Secondly, the team at Food Matters Live bend over backwards to make the event work for us and genuinely understand our requirements for our product. From pre-PR on social through to even helping to set our stand up at 7am…they really have got behind TEA REX and our vision."

Andrew Walker, Co-founder, Tea Rex

"This year’s show was by far the best trade show we have ever experienced as a company and the number of people who expressed interest in our range was incredible! We met with more retail buyers than we could ever have hoped to and a lot of credit must go to the Food Matters Live team in their marketing and putting on such a high-quality event that entices buyers from the large retailers to attend. We would recommend this show to anyone who has a food & beverage brand, whether it be a new company or one that’s been around a while, Food Matters Live is a great place to exhibit your products!"
