The most exciting family business event in the north of England

The Northern Family Business Conference brought together owners and leaders of the most exciting, innovative and family-owned companies in the North of the UK. From cider makers and garden centres to food producers and manufacturers, the North is rich in proud, independent businesses. However, no matter the industry, we know that being in business with your family always brings its own unique challenges and difficulties.

This year’s Conference was a celebration of the wonderful and innovative family businesses who produce and sell food and drink products. From families who have been farming for generations, to biscuit bakers and cheese producers, cider makers, artisan startups and everything in between.

Our incredible line-up of Guest Speakers shared their insights into the complex world of the food and drink industry. We covered a huge variety of topics –

  • Importance of planning for succession, no matter your size

  • Taking the family business global

  • Securing your products in supermarkets & retailers

  • Working with siblings

  • Your relationship with the Food Standards Agency

  • Buying shares from family members

  • Creating a world-renowned artisan brand
