Chamber of Commerce, Ciudad Real, Spain - Visit to the UK, March 2015

In March this year Xtend2 , accompanied a group of Spanish business studies students sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, Ciudad Real, Spain. The students came to the UK to learn about the export trade between the two countries – Spain and the UK.

On their arrival in London the students were invited to a presentation on the UK food & drink sector given by Xtend2 Managing Director, Gerald Lawson-Tancred. This was then followed by a visit to the IFE – the UK’s largest food & drink exhibition held in London. The following day the students were taken on a retail tour across London which included a tour around a wide range of food and drink outlets including the large multiple supermarkets, independent retailers and high end stores. It also included a visit to the prestigious Wine Emporium, Hedonism, who gave us all an excellent tour of their store. The students found the whole programme fascinating including the discovery that not all Manchego Cheese sold in the UK is produced in the DO Manchego!
