Don't miss the opportunity to capitalise on the government's move towards local sourcing with the one-day MTJ Bid For Success conference on 5 March.
Competition for public sector business is fierce, but the rewards for the successful can be huge, as butchers who supply this sector have found out.
The conference will equip you with knowledge and understanding of the public sector process from the procurer's and seller's perspective, to give you that competitive edge.
Designed for all sizes of business, the content will be of greatest benefit to suppliers who have ignored public sector supply, believing being small bars them from having a slice of such business. You will find how to tap into the right channels for winning contracts
The conference will also provide you with an opportunity to learn about the work carried out by the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX) and the British Pig Executive (BPEX), so that public sector buyers will consider purchasing traditionally lower-value cuts, such as the forequarters, for full carcase utilisation. Tony Goodger, trade sector manager - foodservice for the Meat & Livestock Commission, will be launching a DVD, which shows butchery techniques for such cuts.
Sir Don Curry will chair the MTJ conference, which is being held at Ardencote Manor in Warwick. The delegate price isjust £50 - an investment that will pay manifold benefits.
