Local food producers are being given the opportunity to showcase their produce during a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event taking place on Friday 7 November, at Ballycastle Marina from 12:30 – 2:30pm.

Organised as part of Business in the Community’s Grow Local, GO GLOBAL initiative and sponsored by the Henderson Group, this event will provide:

· Small to medium-sized organisations from the local food sector with the opportunity to pitch their produce to relevant buyers

· Paula McIntyre, resident chef on BBC Radio Ulster’s weekly Saturday Magazine recipe spot will also provide a demonstration of local produce, putting her renowned cooking skills into practice by serving lunch for everyone

· Local enterprises will gain access to valuable information and advice

Grow Local, GO GLOBAL is a business support programme provided by the Councils of Ballymoney, Coleraine, Limavady and Moyle. It is part-funded by Invest NI and the European Regional Development Fund under the Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for Northern Ireland.
