Andrew Reed, managing director of wine & exhibitions at William Reed, said: “Across the UK Food & Drink Shows’ three days, we’ll be addressing exactly what impact the heightened cost of living is having on the industry, grilling our expert panels on what can be done to help and highlighting the latest products and solutions the sector has to offer.

“The UK Food & Drink Shows are historically an event in which industry professionals can come together, dissect problems, and share ideas. Our industry’s spirit was laid bare throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, now – as we face yet another challenge – I have no doubt that we will unite once again in April to prove our resilience.”
