biz4Biz ConneXions networking lunch

Thursday 23 June 2022 at the Novotel Stevenage

Find out how sustainable businesses can operate around the globe and still deliver, support and grow sustainably. This is a vital message for every business so don’t miss this opportunity to hear how it can be achieved!

biz4Biz returns with another popular lunch event at the Novotel Stevenage. Our guest speaker is Ian Michell, Group Technical and Procurement Director at Stevenage-based Flamingo Group International (FGI), one of the largest specialist agribusinesses in Europe. Ian will talk about how Flamingo became an ethical, sustainable and scalable winning business.

FGI is a market-leading business in the UK and European horticulture market that delivers quality flowers, produce and plants to UK major retailers and online home delivery retailers from their farms in Kenya and Ethiopia and a trusted network of global partner suppliers.

FGI currently employs just over 24,000 staff globally, and the business was recently awarded the Gold Standard from One Carbon World for achieving carbon neutrality on their vertically integrated farming, supply, and distribution.

FGI has been selling Fairtrade flowers and produce since 2007 and has contributed over $10m to community projects and support in Kenya and Ethiopia for the education, health and welfare of the communities surrounding their farms.

Join us for a delicious three-course meal and an opportunity to network, make new business contacts, discuss issues of interest with like-minded business people 

We expect demand for this event to be high – our last lunch event at the Novotel in April proved to be popular and was fully booked, so we advise you to register early to secure your place.
