Supply chain event offers lots of food for thought

Fifty SMEs from the food and drink sector in Wales participated in an Access the Buyer event last week, focusing on improvements to supply chains. Rosie Sweetman, director of Business in the Community Cymru, said Welsh SMEs in the food industry expected to create around 130 new jobs in the next two years. The event was sponsored by Santander as part of its commitment to supporting small businesses. Paul Brooks, business development director at Santander, said: 'SMEs tell us that a key barrier to growth is being able to access the supply chains of larger businesses, and the Access to Buyer events provide guidance for small business owners on how to successfully win new contracts and trade with their larger cousins.'
