Food tech network YFood is launching new monthly meetups in Manchester under a partnership with city office space supplier Bruntwood.
The new ‘YFood Tech Wednesdays’ start next Wednesday, November 14 at the Manchester Technology Centre on Oxford Road. The guest speaker will be Andrew Steele, a Manchester-born Olympian and part of the founding team at personal genetics and nutrition company DNAfit.
Future events will take place on the second Wednesday of most months at Bruntwood venues in Manchester. As well as presentations there will discussions, facilitated networking and drinks. The new meetups build on YFood’s programme of activities in London and will aim to build a community of northern industry brands, startups and investors around food innovation.
Nadia El Hadery, founder and CEO of YFood—and a speaker at the Peach 2020 Conference in London on November 21—said: “Manchester is an exciting and vibrant city, with an on-the-pulse, growing food and tech scene. We can’t wait to work with Bruntwood to start building and nurturing an epic local food tech community in Manchester.”
The YFood Tech Wednesdays are free to attend, but space is limited and registration is required. There is more about the programme here, and you can book places here.
