DIT East of England leads initiative to promote export opportunities for AgriTech companies

As HM Government announces measures to help support the UK’s AgriTech sector as a major global player, Exemplas Trade Services leads a new initiative to identify key food and drink opportunities in the Nordics and Northern Europe as part of its contract with the Department for International Trade.

The England’s Finest Buyer Network supports UK sellers to export by introducing them to overseas buyers through a virtual networking platform. As part of this campaign, DIT East of England will host a virtual meet-the-buyer event to introduce UK Craft Beer companies to a Swedish buyer in the coming week.

Later in the year, the campaign will organise a larger-scale project called “Trade without Travel”. The project is a series of virtual events designed to showcase the finest UK AgriTech products to potential buyers from the Nordics and Northern Europe.

Marguerite Meyer Bassnett, Managing Director, Exemplas Trade Services Ltd, says:

“It’s vital that we support these fantastic UK companies and use the very latest in digital technology to provide them with export opportunities that would otherwise be difficult amid the complexities we are currently faced with COVID-19. England’s Finest is a Food and Drink campaign that utilises digital technology in tandem with the support the DIT can offer via its network of International Advisers and overseas Trade Officers.”


Exemplas Trade Services Ltd (ETSL) has delivered the contract for the Department for International Trade (formerly UK Trade and Investment) in the East of England for almost a decade.
