Manchester F&B Network
The Food and Beverage (F&B) industry is vital to the economy and identity of Manchester and CityCo and the Manchester BID are committed to supporting its growth and influence.
Our Manchester F&B Network brings together city centre operators at informal networking briefings. The meetings allow businesses to connect with each other and city decision makers and discuss the priorities and concerns of the food and drink sector.
In 2017 we started by addressing the issues of rough-sleeping and criminal activity and how F&B venues can best prepare and respond. We then discussed the importance of counter-terrorism awareness training (Project Griffin) among the F&B community.
In 2018 we began with a look at industry Talent, Training and Recruitment – especially in light of post-Brexit challenges – and met at The Northern Restaurant & Bar Show. This was followed by discussions on sustainability and the changing way we pay in restaurants and bars.
More to come in 2019. See below for announcements.
