North West food and drink companies invited to Quick Wins Workshop

Free networking opportunity for the region's food and drink sector to improve resource efficiency and reduce waste costs.

Posted on 12 October 2009

The National Industrial Symbiosis Programme (NISP) has organised  the Food and Drink Quick Wins Workshop, an event which will bring together organisations involved in the food and drink sector for a structured practical forum where companies can network, share ideas and opportunities and match their resource ‘haves’ with other companies’ resource ‘wants’. 
With advice on making the most of resources and saving money on disposal costs, the event will help companies improve resource flows and increase efficiency.  It will also allow attendees to discuss current issues affecting the food and drink sector whilst giving solution providers the opportunity to meet potential customers.
The event represents a fantastic networking opportunity for organisations involved in the food and drink sector, previous NISP workshops consistently generate over 100 resource matches in just 100 minutes of networking.
NISP is a free business opportunity programme funded by Defra. Through NISP, companies can achieve substantial cost savings, generate sales from new markets and contribute towards creating an environmentally sustainable economy. NISP deals with all types of resource – materials, energy, water and supports the sharing of assets, logistics and expertise.
The half day event is being sponsored by Food Northwest, Groundwork Merseyside and Knowsley Business Environment Club and will be held on 10th November 2009 at the Village Hotel, Whiston. It will start at 8.30am, will include a buffet lunch plus an optional networking workshop.
The deadline for registration forms is Thursday 5th November 2009.
