What is UK’s Finest?
As the demand for British food and drink products continues to grow globally, we’ve developed UK’s Finest marketplace for international buyers to connect with export ready food and drink suppliers from the UK.
The free, easy-to-use platform allows you to search and connect with top quality, international food and drink brands, helping you build trusted, international relationships from the comfort of your own computer or mobile device.
Who has developed UK’s Finest?
Exemplas Trade Services Limited, delivery partner for the Department for International Trade in the East of England, has developed UK’s Finest using the wealth of international exporting knowledge built up over many years.
How does it work?
- First, buyers and sellers go through a pre-qualification process. This helps ensure that all members of the marketplace are of the highest quality and that both buyers and sellers are ready, willing and able to do business.
2. Add your pitch
- Once granted access to UK’s Finest, you can create an online profile to showcase and pitch your business to the top quality, trusted international brands on the platform.
3. Explore the marketplace
- If you’re looking for a specific product to buy or for a buyer in a particular market, you can search the marketplace using intuitive filters to find exactly what you’re after.
4. Connect with brands
- When you’ve found a brand you’re interested in, you can request a connection with the user. Once you’re connected, the platform will keep you up to date with that brand, sending any opportunities straight to your email inbox.
5. Message key decision makers
- Most importantly, you will also be able to message the key decision makers of businesses you’re connected with, helping you create long-lasting, trusted international relationships.
