Dedicated to the food manufacturing, retailing and butchery industries Meat2 Trade is a new trade exhibition coming to Lisburn’s Eikon Exhibition Centre in October 2019.

Taking place on the 2nd and 3rd October, it is the brainchild of Butchery Excellence International CEO, Rhonda Montgomery.

“In 2019, we’re raising the bar with Meat2Trade and have invested significantly in making this new show an event that’s absolutely relevant to businesses in food manufacturing and butchery today.” comments Rhonda Montgomery, organiser of Meat2Trade.

Sponsored by Cutting Edge Services, Meat2Trade will feature over 100 Meat, Artisan Butchery and Food Manufacturing businesses all under one roof.

Key Account Manager of Cutting Edge Services, Garyth Quigley comments, “We are delighted to support Meat2Trade, in what is sure to be a very informative and interesting first event. With visitors having the opportunity to learn about new technologies, products and services, as well as how you can put them into practice, the show is definitely not to be missed.”

The show will play host to a range of exciting initiatives including a ‘Dragon’s Den’ panel for agri-food producers to pitch to, a ‘Product of Show’ competition with £1,000 prize, and the first-ever Four Nations Butchery Championships.

Rhonda Montgomery concludes: “We would like to thank our event partners, Manor Farm, Spice O’Life, UMC, Rational, Quinfresh, Globeweigh, Cutting Edge, Kiernans Food Ingredients, Rhino Media, McDonnells, MLS Label, and Design and Printing Systems for their continued support and collaboration on the event.
