At Foodbuy, we are continually looking at ways to drive innovation and ensure our product range meets our client needs. Through our Innovation Station events, suppliers are provided with the opportunity to showcase and discuss their latest products and innovations with our team of experts and look at ways to enhance our product range to support our clients.
The first three Innovation Station events were held at our Foodbuy HQ at Chertsey where we invited existing and new suppliers to showcase their latest products to our team and clients. For suppliers, it’s a great engagement and networking day where they demonstrate how their innovative products can add value to our clients. Our team of experts had the opportunity to learn about all the latest product ranges and trends and build on our knowledge and expertise so we can help our clients meet their needs.
Jenni Griffin, Head of Food at Foodbuy said: “This event has been great for my team and I to stay well informed on the latest products entering the market and the added value that they provide. The feedback direct from our culinary teams to suppliers is invaluable to them when creating new-product development. We look forward to hosting more Innovation Stations in the future to continue to offer market-leading innovative solutions for our clients.”
Planted, one of the suppliers who attended commented: “I’ve been to many supplier days and not many run as smoothly as yours did. Found it to be well structured and a massive thanks to the wider support team – all so helpful and accommodating. We came away with some fantastic feedback on our range, as well as ideas on how we can help develop and grow the range offering for your clients.”
Scott Freeman, Culinary Director, Compass One said: “Thanks for organising the Innovation Session in Chertsey. I found the suppliers were all great to talk to and a good selection presented to us all.”
