Paris Smith are delighted to continue to headline sponsor the Business South Local Produce Trade Show for a third year running, in partnership with Hampshire Fare, Cavendish Ship Stores, Carnival UK, Cunard, Hampshire Farmers’ Markets and New Forest Marque.

The show, now in its 12th year brings together the regions food and drink suppliers with caterers, buyers and hospitality professionals to network, build relationships and grow their businesses. With a specialist food and drink team based at our Southampton and Winchester offices, it is important for Paris Smith to support such a key event in the industry calendar.

Helen Freeston, Marketing Director at Paris Smith said, “The Local Produce Trade Show is one of the most exciting events we get involved with; over the years we have seen many local businesses grow as a result of the show and in many cases have been able to offer the legal support to make this happen.”

Like the organisers of the show, Paris Smith are passionate about local business and enterprise, and play our part by providing an intimate knowledge of the food and drink sector, offering practical legal advice and help producers connect with the southern region and beyond.

The 2020 Local Produce Trade Show will be held on 24 January at Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton.
