Business Networking

Networking and Events allow local business people to build new relationships and generate new business opportunities.  Breckland, as a district, offers excellent networking opportunities which discover, champion and connect ambitious talented businesses to enable growth. 


Now in its 5th year, Local Flavours is back bigger and better on Wednesday 27th September at the Norfolk Showground Arena. The event showcases the wealth of talent in the food and drink industry from across the region, offering free business support and advice, sampling from the best producers, kitchen demonstrations and much more. 

This is an ideal event to meet over 100 local food and drink producers from the Eastern region, sample new tastes as well as a few familiar ones. There is also the networking opportunity and will entertain you with cookery demonstrations, music, food and drink and much more.

As always the event is free to attend for business owners, chefs, food buyers, trainees and others working in the industry and looking to source local produce. Local Flavours is more than just a networking event. For more information and to register visit Local Flavours
