Our friends in The North NORTH OF ENGLAND SPECIAL

It’s becoming a September tradition for FFD to host a round table discussion. So, with Fine Food Show North around the corner, we gathered some of The North of England’s best independent retail minds in Harrogate to consider the industry’s recent challenges, its future and possibly dispel the odd myth about what it’s like in the upper half of the country.

MEET THE PANEL Jennifer Horton, (The Corbridge Larder, Northumberland), Heather Parry (Yorkshire Event Centre / Fodder, Harrogate), Emma Mosey (Minskip Farm Shop, nr York) and Sangita Tryner (Delilah Fine Foods, Nottingham) sat down with Guild of Fine Food MD John Farrand and FFD editor Michael Lane to discuss all things independent in the Yorkshire Agricultural Society boardroom, next door to Fodder, in Harrogate.
