“The course made me understand the importance of gaining as much knowledge as possible about what I am buying in terms of product, supplier, supply chain to help ensure we are buying effectively and dealing with the right suppliers for our business.”

“I found the course intensive and wide-ranging but ultimately rewarding. The venue and presentation were excellent. I was introduced to new concepts but also to a different perspective on established ones. The course also offers a great opportunity to meet people from a wide selection of businesses and to share knowledge and experience.”

“The course was excellent – it is great to have a buying course based on the Food Industry and one which will make a difference to myself and the company that I work for.”
