Established in June 2011, Taste North East is a food and drink membership organisation owned by its members. Its mission is to inspire people to discover, source and share locally produced food, and showcase what the North East region has to offer. Membership has many benefits to businesses in the food and drink industry, including introducing new customers, providing better connections, saving time and money and generally creating a buzz about their business. All food and drink sector related businesses in the North East, no matter what type or size, are eligible to join Taste North East. This specialist organisation helps their members identify target markets and assists them in showcasing their products to all types of buyers including, independent retailers, catering businesses, supermarkets and farm shops.
Before switching to Direct Debit, Taste North East collected their membership fees via Bacss or cheques. Direct Debit collections through SmartDebit have given them total control over their cash flow as they no longer have to wait for money to enter their organisation from bank or cheque clearance.
