Leicester Business Festival Event
From Farm to Forks at 37 Thousand Feet - F&B Supplier Opportunities at EMA

Are you a local food producer or drinks manufacturer? Have you ever travelled through an airport in a far-flung destination and wondered how they got hold of the produce they serve? Do you think your food and drink would be well received by hungry and thirsty air passengers? This event will help you understand what opportunities there are for local businesses to get onto the supply chain of this global company who stock airports across the world.

At East Midlands Airport, we pride ourselves in stocking local produce; whether it's locally distilled gin in our new bar Proof 65 or meat from local butchers.

Much of our catering is managed by HMSHost – the industry leader in culinary innovation. HMSHost is at the forefront of the latest airport dining technology and operates at airports throughout the world including East Midlands.

There will be opportunities to sample food that is currently served at EMA within its food outlets.

Confirmed Speakers:

Andrew Goss: UK Procurement Manager - HMSHost Aneka Ali: Commercial and Operations Manager – East Midlands Airport

All delegates must bring their passport with them, as the event will be held airside.

The Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP), in partnership with Leicester City Council & Leicestershire County Council, have commissioned Element Energy and Cambridge Econometrics to develop and deliver an Energy Infrastructure Strategy and Implementation Plan for the LLEP area. The Energy Infrastructure Strategy will set the level of ambition and guide investment in this sector, which has been identified as one of the LLEP's priority sectors for economic growth. The strategy will identify a set of opportunities for low carbon projects across the LLEP area and will contain an Implementation Plan.

The strategy will take into account national and local policies and will be based on extensive research into current energy use and future energy scenario modelling to identify opportunities and barriers to the growth of the sector as well as key priorities and projects. It aims to encourage further engagement and raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities for Leicester and Leicestershire's energy system and will inform the Energy Infrastructure Strategy and, in turn, the Local Industrial Strategy.

The Energy Challenge Paper, is an intermediate output and forms a key part of the development of the Energy Infrastructure Strategy. It is based on stakeholder engagement, desk-based research and discussions with the steering board. Stakeholder engagement has been undertaken with a wide range of stakeholders, including representatives from local private and public-sector organisations. It has been carried out through bilateral consultations, email correspondence and a workshop for mostly public-sector organisations. The aim of this paper is to further engage key stakeholders and raise awareness of the challenges for Leicester and Leicestershire's energy system.

The LLEP invites partners and stakeholders to respond with their comments on the Energy Challenge Paper by emailing marcin.szymanski@llep.org.uk or andy.rose@llep.org.uk before 31st August.
