A food festival specifically set up to help budding food entrepreneurs set up and scale up their businesses will make its debut this November in London.

Held on November 12 and 13 at The Institute of Directors, Bread & Butter will offer visitors interactive content, workshops, an advice bar and a schedule of speakers from established companies, including Pret a Manger, Graze and Rebel Kitchen.

The space at the two-day festival – which has been created by start-up specialists Kitchen Table Projects founder Tara Mei and Jason Gibb of The FoodHub – will be divided into six zones for ease of navigation.

“This is an exciting new show which will be a gathering of an incredible community of passionate producers – from start-ups at the idea stage, right through to serial entrepreneurs trading globally,” said Tara Mei. “They are all like-minded people who want to, or already create, amazing food and drink products.”

Jason Gibb, who founded and sold the premium olive oil brand Nudo, said that the festival was designed to help food entrepreneurs along what could be a “lonely road”

“The aim of Bread & Butter is to build a community of friendly, passionate producers who support each other through the highs and lows. We want to hand entrepreneurs the tools and opportunities to have a go at pursuing their passions and turning ideas in to reality, by giving them access to the expertise they need to make their businesses last.”

Tickets for a single day are £150 and £270 for both days but ‘early bird’ tickets with a discount of £50 are available now
