Knighton goes international…

Monday 28th May saw some of the Knighton Foods team head out to Amsterdam, Holland to exhibit at PLMA (Private Label Manufactures Association) for the first time.

PLMA has for over 30 years sought to bring retailers and manufacturers together at the RAI in Amsterdam. An opportunity for manufactures to bring innovation to the attention of not only some of Europe’s most recognisable retailers and brands but, increasingly some of the worlds.

Exhibiting at PLMA was a first for Knighton and, forms part of the continued strategy of growth through 2018/19. Situated within the ‘Great Britain’ pavilion and surrounded by some of the UK’s biggest manufacturers the team had a busy Tuesday and Wednesday as an estimated 15,000 trade professionals attended the exhibition seeking innovative ideas and, looking to work with new suppliers.

Colin Wilding – Consumer Foods Business Unit Director commented “Exhibiting at PLMA has presented us with some fabulous opportunities. The ability to meet retailers, brand owners and other manufacturers from across the world in one location and talk to them about Knighton’s history and expertise was fantastic.”

On stand, the team presented a range of the products and packaging formats available from Knighton and, discussions with attendees were positive and upbeat. The team returned from the show with a number of potential opportunities and, were proud to have been able to share just why so many of the UK’s most recognisable brands trust Knighton to partner with.
