Mark Tuesday 12th September in your diaries for the return of Food Force Ireland’s annual trade day.

This year is a particularly special year for the organisation as it marks its 30th anniversary.

Food Force Ireland works on behalf of Northern Ireland’s Nisa members, working to negotiate the best possible deals between members and local suppliers.

Following two years where it migrated online due to pandemic restrictions, its renowned trade show returned to its physical format last year.

Gavin Emerson, Debra Johnston and Jonathan Crawford from Food Force Ireland.

Organised by FFI’s trading controller, Debra Johnston, the event at the Culloden Estate and Spa, promises to be a very special celebration of the close working relationships enjoyed with all their suppliers.

With many members expected to take part in or come along on the day, Debra said everyone is looking forward to doing some “better than ever deals” to celebrate the FFI’s milestone, while in turn supporting them with “great orders”.

With exciting product launches and promotions and a range of supplier displays of product ranges, the Food Force Ireland event is an essential component of the retail and trade sectors’ calendar.

A mutually beneficial day for FFI members and suppliers, a highlight of the annual occasion is the awards ceremony, where a select number of accolades are handed out to the year’s most assiduous suppliers.

If suppliers would still like to take part in this year’s conference, they can contact Debra on 079708 36763.
