Beyond the Parmo – Middlesbrough Food Summit

15 November 2017 09:30 - 15 November 2017 16:30
Teesside University Students’ Union

The parmo has become synonymous with Middlesbrough and food. However, the face of food culture is changing dramatically and there is now so much more to food in Middlesbrough and the region than just the parmo.

Middlesbrough’s Food Partnership is holding a Food Summit on Wednesday 15th November 2017 to celebrate these achievements, to provide replicable best practice and case studies, and disseminate its strategic vision.

There will be inspirational talks by keynote and national guest speakers, including Prof. Martin Caraher, Centre for Food Policy, City University London, and the effervescent Pam Warhurst, founding member of Incredible Edibles. You will also hear from Teesside’s food heroes – those inspirational people that are changing the face of Middlesbrough’s food culture, who are leading the way and putting the town on the map.

What else is happening?

• Taste some of the fantastic produce the region has to offer at the Meet the Producer event, and find a new local supplier for your business event
