Networking on the menu

FOOD and drink businesses across the region have come together in a networking event.

The Meet and Eat session at Newcastle Falcons was organised by Taste North East, for businesses to share ideas and showcase their services.

Bethany Swash, from the Northumberland Cheese Company at Blagdon, said: “This was a very successful evening for us.

“We gained promising new business leads, increased our profile with local businesses, and it was good to learn about the plans that Taste Club has for 2013 to support and promote members.”
