Social: How to approach buyers

  • Sourced Market 68 Wigmore St London W1U 2SD (map)

Join us for our legendary monthly socials, where food and drink founders and industry experts gather for an evening of networking, sharing new ideas and advice, learning new things and making new friends. If you’re thinking of attending the Bread & Jam festival in October, our socials are a great way to dip your toe into our supportive community.

Our socials are free to attend: No need to arrive on the dot or stay ‘til the end - it’s a social!

What happens: At each Social we are joined by an industry icon who will share invaluable industry insights to kick the evening off, around 7pm. They will give a very short, 10 minute, talk, swiftly followed by a Question & Answer session and networking.

This month’s theme: How to approach right buyers.

Guest Speaker: Adrian Boswell, Selfridges. Adrian is the national buyer for the cheese and deli counter, Health & Wellbeing and Foods of the World at Selfridges Foodhall. He is a strong supporter of emerging and innovative brands and has a decade of food FMCG under his belt.

Adrian will be sharing his tips on “the 5 things that will make him say ‘no’ and the 5 things that will make him say ‘yes’ to a new listing.”

Who will be there: Food and drink entrepreneurs, individuals thinking of starting a food & drink business, industry experts.

Thanks to Sourced Market for supporting our community by providing this fantastic space.

Please register on Eventbrite so we know you’re attending. Socials are really popular, so we need to make sure that there’s enough room for everyone. See you there!
