Scheduled for Tuesday 4 June and Tuesday 18 June 2024, at University Centre Shrewsbury (The Guildhall), this event promises to be a milestone for businesses in the food and drink sector aiming to boost their sustainability practices.

The masterclass, funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, is designed to guide businesses through their sustainability journey, helping them to start, enhance, and effectively communicate their green initiatives to consumers and stakeholders. This series is crucial for businesses looking to merge sustainability with commercial success.

Delivered by specialists Caroline Mason of Seeds to Thrive and Louise Welsby of Buy-From Creative Agency, the sessions are crafted to provide valuable insights into sustainable practices and marketing. Caroline brings over two decades of global experience in the food system, offering an unparalleled perspective on achieving sustainability goals. Louise, with her extensive background in creative marketing, will share strategies on how businesses can communicate their sustainability narratives effectively.
