Put your business in front of global leaders and ambitious new brands of the future.

The FDF runs exciting and thought-provoking events throughout the year including awards ceremonies, high-profile dinners and training. With our membership ranging from the largest global brands to growing, ambitious SMEs we enjoy excellent attendance at our events.

There's no better way to get your brand in front of prospective food and drink clients than by sponsorship of a FDF event. We also offer a range of exhibitor packages to suit all budgets.

Benefits of FDF sponsorship

  • Bring your brand to the attention of senior food and drink industry leaders
  • Maximise opportunities to gain business in this thriving sector
  • Keep your offer top of mind post-event and follow-up with prospective customers
  • Build your network of food and drink industry professional contacts

FDF e-newsletters

The strength of the FDF brand means our members take notice of our communications, making sponsoring our newsletters a great way to showcase your services. We don’t have ‘mailing lists’, our distribution is to thousands of actively opted-in member and non-member account holders. This ensures our data is up-to-date and that our e-newsletters are selected by recipients to reflect their areas of interest.

A small number of regular FDF e- newsletters are available for sponsorship:

  • FDF EU Update newsletter
  • FDF Business Confidence survey
  • FDF ‘What’s New’ newsletter
  • FDF Insights and Benefits newsletter
  • FDF Events newsletter
  • FDF Onboarding guide (published annually)

We also offer select opportunities for banner advertising in our Events and What’s New e-newsletters at £500+VAT per banner. Please contact us for the publication schedule and more information.

Event programmes

Our prestigious events, including an annual industry dinner, FDF Awards and FDF Convention offer a great opportunity to raise your profile with attendees by advertising in the event programmes. The high-quality colour programmes are valued by attendees and offer an easy and cost-effective way to showcase your brand and services.
