GET INVOLVED IN BITE SUSSEX

The heart of the Brighton and Sussex food, drink and hospitality industry is YOU: the restaurateurs, wine makers, chefs, brewers, growers, producers, retailers, mixologists, distillers and hoteliers of our region.

 

Having worked with hundreds of businesses in Brighton & Hove and surrounding Sussex over the years, we understand not only your marketing and promotional needs but also the on-the-ground challenges of our industry and the complexities of the supply chain that makes Sussex such a special – but sometimes challenging – place to live, visit and work. From Covid to Brexit, with so much current uncertainty surrounding food and drink, we're here to help facilitate recovery, resilienceregeneration and the shear relevance of our sectors not only within region but also nationally and internationally.

We strive to ensure our partner and supporter fees are as reasonable as possible to ensure small local entrepreneurs that share our values can participate in both consumer and business-to-business events. Our entry level package for Sussex-based food, drink and hospitality business is £25 per month.
