Sleaford Quality Foods is a leading supplier to the food manufacturing and catering industries, and we are proud to announce them as host for this year’s Greater Lincolnshire Manufacturing Conference run in conjunction with NatWest.
We are pleased to be taking the annual event to a manufacturer and would be delighted if you could join us.
The morning will be packed with knowledge enabling you to:
- Learn about the importance of implementing forward-thinking strategies to bridge the gap between the future realities of global manufacturing and companies’ plans to meet the demand;
- Hear how you can drive productivity through people by empowering and engaging front line staff;
- Explore the latest economic trends, challenges and the prospects for industry;
- Understand the impact on your business when trading with Europe post-Brexit;
- Gain an insight into the ever-evolving area of robotics and automation from Lincolnshire based businesses who have successfully implemented these emerging techniques.
To conclude the event, there will be the opportunity to join a site tour of Sleaford Quality Foods. Discover their journey from starting out as a small local family-run business to becoming a UK leading supplier, distributing goods both nationally and internationally.
