Food and drink startups are becoming ever more popular. The appeal and relevance of great products in the foodie world means more and more founders are vying for consumer attention and supermarket shelf space. 

In a saturated market, how do you stand out? And if you manage to break through, how do you grow your business and operations to ensure you can keep your customers happy? Join Virgin StartUp in August as we find out how to start and scale a food and drink brand at our next MeetUp.

If you want to hear from three food and drink pioneers with unique perspectives on getting food and drink startups to market, to international audiences and to scale, grab your free ticket, get ready to network with like-minded founders and come armed with a notepad and pen - you’ll need it.
