Overview

Bread & Jam has launched its first virtual D2C summit for omnichannel food & drink challenger brands, industry experts and investors. 

UK D2C sales are expected to top £120bn by 2023, as 57% of consumers choose buying direct over retail. Since the first lock-down online sales of food and drink products have rocketed by 45.5% in the UK. The global pandemic has accelerated channel reconfiguration faster than anyone expected. And now that traditional retail can be bypassed this brave new world is a huge opportunity for those who can adapt to this disrupted market the fastest - and these are the emerging challenger brands.

Be part of a virtual gathering of hundreds of challenger brands and thought leaders to explore growth opportunities in the D2C boom.

This is a must-attend virtual event for:

  • Anyone interested in growing their onmichannel food and drink business.
  • Entrepreneurs ready to launch a new food or drink business.
  • Industry experts looking to support omnichannel brands.
