Food and drink producers have been urged to take the chance to make business connections with buyers as a specialised industry event returns for its fifth year.

Organisers said limited trade stand space is still available for Local Flavours 2017, which will take place on September 27 at the Norfolk Showground Arena.

Registration has also opened for buyers to attend the event, which has grown to accommodate more than 100 exhibitors since its launch in 2012.

The event aims to help East Anglian producers acquire new customers and contracts by meeting thousands of food buyers from catering, hospitality, food retail and tourism backgrounds.

Last year's Meet the Buyer slots encouraged national brands including Tesco, Center Parcs, Morrisons, and Makro to join local buyers, giving producers the opportunity to pitch in a more private setting.
