Clarke Nicklin and the Stockport Business Awards have teamed up with food-focused multi-disciplinary business Foodsync to host the first Stockport Food and Drink Awards on the 20th June. Clarke Nicklin who are organisers and main sponsors of the Stockport Business Awards have been working with Foodsync to support the first Stockport Food and Drink Trade show giving food and drink businesses and suppliers the opportunity to connect to people producing great stuff with passion and purpose; the aim is to bring those business closer to local suppliers within a 60 mile radius of Stockport.
