Roythornes’ marketing manager Mark Dodds said: “Mr Garner is one of the foremost speakers on what is happening between the big food retailers and will be giving his insight into the latest trends from the ‘battles’ on the high street.

The Food Business Breakfast aims to bring together the firms in the region that work in the food sector, from producers to machinery suppliers and professional services.

Mr Dodds said: “At our previous event in May we had over 100 delegates attend, so there’s clearly a need for a forum where the sector to get together and exchange ideas.

“We hope companies will use the opportunity to get together to make new contacts and develop their businesses. The food sector is vibrant and innovative, and we hope to do our part to maintain its importance to the region.”
