Emerging Supplier Forum

Foodstuffs North Island, in partnership with the Food Innovation Network, would love you to join us at our Emerging Supplier Forum.

We’ll have an awesome team from Foodies and a customer insights expert from dunnhumby to share their experiences and some insights into what goes into supplying our stores. You’ll also be able to connect with other small businesses from the area to build a network to support you on your retail grocery journey.
