Why We Are Consulting

We are keen to work with the exciting array of food and drink establishments in Nottinghamshire. We recognise that there is no better way to understand what is required and where we can add value than to get the views and unique insights of those businesses we want to support. We would appreciate responses from any Food and Drink related establishments spanning the entire supply chain; from growers, manufacturers and producers all the way through to restaurants and bars.

We would like to invite you to take a few minutes to complete the following survey, which will give you a great opportunity to tell us what type of support you might like to see from the County Council and provide valuable feedback on our initial ideas.

This survey will help develop a food and drink pilot which will focus on supporting the food and drink sector. It is planned that this pilot will be available to eligible businesses for free.
