PITCHme is a Dragon’s Den-style opportunity giving suppliers the chance to pitch their brand to a panel of buyers and influencers in a cross-section of industry sectors. Suppliers submit an entry for consideration to the panel, who will then make a list of finalists.

These finalists will then have the opportunity to present their product in person where a panel of industry experts, including representation from small and large distributors, high profile chefs, and buyers for groups from banner QSRs to institutions. The panel will judge the products against peers and competitors and provide feedback and advice as to how the product could be better purposed and developed.

The COVID-19 pandemic has ignited a surge of innovation as businesses pivot and look for ways to stand out from the crowd. The panel are ready, are you?
