Business Bites, a networking group for small food and drink producers in Lancashire, has expanded to cover the whole north west region.
The group, set up by Lancashire trading standards expert Joanne Scott late last year, has had success with monthly events in the county.
Scott, who runs firm Strawberry Standards, has joined forces with another local businesswoman Claire Thomas to roll out this format with events planned for Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Cumbria and Merseyside.
The next event takes place on Thursday May 31 at Pond Restaurant in Preston. Brand protection expert Emma Emery from Freeth Cartwright Solicitors will be speaking about the importance of a company’s brand and how to protect it.
Places cost £10 + VAT. To book, or for more information, contact Claire Thomas Marketing & Events on Claire@clairethomas.biz or 07931 776 352
