With competitive rates and rents, Happerley England wants to support UK food and drink producers following Covid-19. For the industry there has never been a more crucial time to seize great business opportunities and new routes to market. There has never been a more apt moment to root your brand values into your own ingredient supply chain, while engaging with and validating your own provenance story.

For all producers and suppliers who want to feature at Happerley England, its critical point of distinction is that all produce must be Happerley Transparent – meaning the core ingredients can be traced. This information will enable a truly experiential celebration of English provenance. Following Covid-19, it is now free of charge for producers and suppliers to become Happerley Transparent (*excluding a one-off admin fee of £50).
