Made Great in Grimsby held at Industry Insight Day for members of Future Humber on the 26th of September, accommodating two groups of 12 business leaders to showcase and introduce them to the Grimsby seafood cluster. This was carried out with presentations and a tour of two seafood businesses – Pelagia and Alfred Enderby’s.
