Barcode festival

GroceryAid is launching a summer festival for the food and drink industry next year.

Barcode Festival will take place in Canada Water on 28 June 2018.

Hosted at Hawker House, the event will include headline acts, food and drink demos, DJs and street entertainment.

The charity says that this event will provide networking opportunities and access to the best up-and-coming brands from across the world.

“This is an industry first, providing a unique opportunity to showcase brands and products to the trade in a very different setting,” said GroceryAid chief executive Steve Barnes.

“Festivalgoers will experience incredible food and drink, fabulous entertainment and the chance to network with industry colleagues in a relaxed environment. We see Barcode Festival as an occasion where our industry comes together to learn, laugh, celebrate and raise funds for grocery colleagues in distress.”

Standard tickets start from £250, with a range of sponsorship packages available.
