You are invited to attend a food and drink market visit to Reykjavik.

The visit will take place on 25th-26th November 2014 and is targeted at UK based companies across the food and drink industry who are interested in finding new markets for their products.  There is a growing market waiting for you.

Recovering and growing new market opportunities exist to get your product into the Icelandic shops where locals really appreciate good food and where locals are prepared to pay for quality "local" produce.

Regularly ships already go between North East Lincolnshire to Reykjavik.

North East Lincolnshire have offered to either book you in to a place on this trip or take samples of your produce and introduce it to the  trade mission.  If you would like to expand your market please call David Robinson.
