About the Team

Commercial and Membership organogram - pdf

A new division formed in 2012 with a responsibility to:

  • Deliver commercial services to secure income for FDF so as to reduce our reliance on members to fund all our activities, for example, the FDF Awards
  • Stay close to existing members to ensure we understand their requirements and deliver these in order to keep them in membership
  • Actively recruit new members in core food and drink as well as driving Professional Affiliate membership
  • Develop relationships with other Trade Associations to ensure the industry gets joined-up support
  • Find ways to represent the SME community more effectively and increase the numbers in FDF membership
  • Introduce marketing initiatives to increase awareness of FDF and to sell the products and services we develop.
