As the stands for the 2014 show fill up, we’re pleased to see a lot of familiar faces will be joining us again. Do you recognise any of these exhibitors?
Samways Fine Food Distribution supply delicatessens, farm shops, butchers, fishmongers and coffee shops with a wide range of products from the specialist food sector, from big brands from large manufacturers and importers or new ideas from small artisan producers.
For service and convenience, with over 5000 products available on one invoice, from one supplier, they really have got it covered.
Avlaki is a tiny, but high quality, artisanal operation, based on the Greek island of Lesvos. Their golden organic olive oils have the finest ‘gourmet’ quality, with a light texture and sensational taste and are best used as ‘finishing’ oils – to be drizzled over vegetables after steaming, on soups, with a touch of lemon on salads…or just served with bread for dunking. You can use them for cooking but we think that would be a shame – given the taste!
James is passionate about food and started handmaking chocolates in 1995 when he was working at a delicatessen in Bristol. He was curious to find out how to create chocolates from scratch, so in the evenings he read about chocolate making and then started to blend his own creations in his kitchen at home. James Chocolates have now been having serious fun with good quality chocolate for over 15 years so have been around long enough to know what works! They make a wide range of great tasting British chocolates that are simply but beautifully branded and packaged – proudly combining big flavours with striking designs.

They’re not the only familiar faces you’ll see. From the Sausage Shed to Callestick Farm Dairy Icecream, Lodge Farm Kitchen to Mr Chill’s Traditional Sweet Emporium, and many more besides, it’s almost like a family party!
