BWG Dublin Producer Opportunity

BWG Foods run their Trade Show, at which they have over 900 affiliated retailers in attendance. The Trade Show will provide an opportunity for a small number of selected producers who BWG feel are ‘market-ready’ to show-case their business and their product, and to sell their products to BWG retailers where appropriate. Trading Director, Simon Marriott will give details at this event about how producers can express interest in this. (note only one or two producers will be selected to attend the BWG Food trade show). Application forms will be available at the event and the selection process will take place over the following weeks.
