The Future of Food & Farming – Lancashire Trade Mission to Denmark
June 12 - June 15Free
About the mission
The Department for International Trade North West invites Lancashire-based companies in the food supply chain, (from farm to fork), to join this trade delegation to Denmark.
The Danish food cluster is the 3rd largest in the world and is ranked among the best in European Food Innovation. This is a great opportunity to develop new relationships, identify new opportunites, share best practice and showcase what is great about Lancashire.
This mission would benefit farmers, food producers/processors and agriculture/agritech companies.
What’s on offer?
The guided in-market programme will be arranged by the British Embassy in Denmark over 2 days and will focus on the Greater Aarhus area. Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and the home to the “Silicon Valley of food development and innovation”, Agro Food Park.
The programme will be focussed on innovation and sustainable agriculture – supporting the race to the green transition. The proposed agenda will involve visits to food clusters, research institutions, innovation hubs and other relevant organisations.
*Programme subject to change
The costs of the programme in Denmark will be covered by the Department for International Trade North West.
Companies will need to book and pay for their own flights and accomodation. Hotels will be recommended by the British Embassy.
Eligible SMEs may be able to apply for 50% funding towards the cost of the visit using Internationalisation funding. Please discuss this with your International Trade Advisor (ITA).
The group will be accompanied by the DIT Export Manager for Lancashire
