This autumn, the ultimate Flemish food and drink event Flanders’ Finest Flavours – the first of its kind in the UK – is coming to London. Hosted by Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT), the one-day event will take place at the OXO2 on 18October 2023 from 11:00 – 16:00, promising UK food and drink buyers a unique opportunity to meet 24 Flemish brands first-hand, network, and source new, world-class quality products.

Flanders is the northern region of Belgium that includes the ports of Antwerp-Bruges, Zeebrugge, Ostend and Ghent. And with Flanders emerging as a pioneer in digital and frictionless trade within the UK, the event also offers access for buyers to source food and drink from businesses allowing them to take advantage of this seamless and easy access point to the EU.

The showcase will welcome an exclusive selection of Flemish exhibitors and, for some, will be the only UK event they attend this year, offering a one-off opportunity to meet the team in-person. From artisanal beer, premium gin and spirit brands to organic chocolate, dried meats and keto snacks, the event will be an unmissable chance for visitors to capitalise on the exemplary trade pipeline FIT offers UK businesses.

Dirk Verlee, Trade and Investment Counsellor at Flanders Investment & Trade, based at the Belgian Embassy in London, commented: “We are thrilled to bring the first ever Flanders’ Finest Flavours showcase to London this October for what will be a celebration of flavours, culture and business opportunities. The event will feature Flemish food and drink brands that are currently underrepresented in the UK market and will give them a platform to showcase their exceptional quality and innovative products to some of the UK’s most influential food and drink buyers. The showcase will undoubtedly open new opportunities to taste and try the very best in Flemish flavours.”

Flanders’ Finest Flavours will take place on 18 October 2023 at the OXO2, London. For more information and to register to attend, visit here:
