Mid and East Antrim Food and Drink Network

Amplify is leading the establishment of an industry-led food and drink network.

Mid and East Antrim has strong traditions and capabilities in agriculture and food production and processing.

The Mid and East Antrim Food and Drink Network aims to position itself as the leading advocate for promoting Mid and East Antrim Food and Drink offerings regionally, nationally and internationally.

The food and drink network will facilitate and encourage:

  • The development of a brand/identity for the network in order to promote the sector and local provenance regionally and beyond.
  • Provide growth opportunities to the sector through
    • Workshops
    • Best Practice Visits
    • Networking Opportunities
    • Access and support to showcase at high profile food events and exhibitions
  • Support the area’s food and drink producers to become an active component in the overall NI regional food and drink offering.
