Exclusive Reynolds’ Foodservice Tour – only 15 places available

FRIDAY JUNE 9, 2017: DEPART 8.00AM – RETURN 15:00
Following a highly successful Reynolds’ Foodservice Tour at the LPS16, Andy Weir, Head of Marketing for Reynolds, will host 15 people on an exclusive guided tour around an eclectic mix of London eateries on the final day of The London Produce Show and Conference on June 9, 2017.

Reynolds is a national supplier of fresh produce and other food and drink to the foodservice industry and Andy’s tour will give participants a good wide-angle view of the use of produce in different streams of the London eating-out scene.

Andy’s knowledge and expertise will provide a great overview of the booming foodservice picture in the heart of England’s capital, and a taste of exactly what chefs and operators are looking for in 2017.

Some of the locations are customers of Reynolds, others are not; and you will meet chefs, owners or development chefs at several of the establishments we visit. You’ll also be given plenty of food to taste along the way.

Please Note: There are only 15 places available on the Foodservice Tour. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and this is a popular tour, so get in quick!
