London Produce Show 2019

Bringing the World of Fresh Produce Together

The London Produce Show was presented by FPC and Produce Business, the London Produce Show and Conference is a world-class event with excellent business-to-business networking opportunities, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane in London.

The UK retail scene is evolving rapidly, as discounters, premium and online retailers grow faster than the established mainstream. London’s vibrant foodservice and catering sectors have redefined British cuisine, and a huge wholesale sector buys from all over the world to keep their wide array of retail and catering customers continuously supplied.

The national horticulture sector, at every level, is re-establishing its reputation for being at the sharp-end of innovation – with concepts and products that not only increase demand for locally-grown food, flowers and plants, but also form many of the trends that will shape the global produce industry of tomorrow. Added to that, the inaugural LPS attracted exhibitors and visitors from 45 countries and gave a platform for many of the global fresh produce industry’s thought and practice leaders to share their vast knowledge, experience and expertise with colleagues. LPS is an easy way for you to access this opportunity in an effective and cost-efficient manner.

The FPC Seminar dealt with trading opportunities with the UK.
