What a fantastic four days at IFE
What a fantastic four days at the International Food Event earlier this week.
We were delighted to welcome Minister of State for Agriculture and Food David Heath MP onto the Select Lincolnshire exhibition stand on Monday; to be greeted by Deputy Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, Cllr Eddy Poll. Select Lincolnshire were one of the few stands the Minister visited during his tour of the show, and so we were especially pleased to receive him.
This year's IFE has been one of the busiest we can remember - and other notable guests to Select Lincolnshire include Waitrose, Compass, ASDA, British Airways, LEAF, The Telegraph... plus many more. Now the hard work starts again, following up on all the great leads gained for the Lincolnshire businesses we represented.
More details will follow soon
