Top TV chef Gordon Ramsay was flying the flag for British food at the International Festival for Business (IFB), curating a Gala menu for over 100 guests at UK Trade and Investment’s Food & Drink Summit on 3 July at Knowsley Hall.

The dinner was the grand finale to the UKTI Food & Drink summit, which saw top British suppliers showcasing food to International buyers. The event was being run in partnership with the Food and Drink Federation and aimed to maximise the growth of international food and drink exports for British suppliers.

Gordon Ramsay said:

“I am delighted to be supporting UK Trade & Investment’s Food & Drink event as part of my on-going support of the food is GREAT campaign. As a restauranteur of 12 restaurants in London, quality local produce is key to delivering fine dining at the highest level. I am extremely passionate about supporting British suppliers on a global scale and will be working with a number of UK suppliers as we expand into Asia this September.”

The day began with expert-led seminar sessions followed by the opportunity to have one to one meetings with international buyers from Coles (Australia) and El Corte Ingles (Spain).

The event concluded with an exclusive networking reception and business dinner that was curated and prepared by Gordon Ramsay’s Executive Team.
