Suffolk IT consultancy Rade is sponsoring the European Food and Farming Partnerships (EFFP) annual conference. Rade have provided IT and telecoms support to EFFP for the past 7 years, supporting both their headquarters and regional staff and over-seeing upgrades to their computer network and Internet connections.

This year’s EFFP conference, entitled Food GB: Stepping up to the plate, takes place at Plaisterer’s Hall in London on 2nd November. It will bring together business leaders from across the food and farming sectors.  Speakers include Steve Easterbrook, chief executive of McDonalds UK, and broadcaster Rosie Boycott, representing the London Food Board.

Rade managing director Jake Barton says: “The IT systems we design enable colleagues to share resources and highlight the benefits to be had from collaboration using the web. We are, therefore, pleased to sponsor the EFFP conference which will demonstrate how combining expertise from farming and food industries leads to business success.”
