Produced in Kent 2020: Meet the Members

  • Date: Wednesday 18th March
  • Times: 3:00pm - 8:00pm

About this Event

2020 is going to be a busy year for Produced in Kent!

The food and drink industry has been labelled a priority sector by local government. Local food and sustainability are gaining in popularity, and a number of flagship activities throughout the year (Golf Open at St George, Dreamland 100, 150th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ death) will attract even more visitors to Kent.

Produced in Kent is keen to tell you about our plans and priorities for 2020, introduce you to our new manager as well as some of the partners we are working with, and discuss how we can best support our members in managing a successful business.
