After months of preparation, The Food & Drink Trade Show finally opens tomorrow. Work is well underway behind the scenes right now. The stands are going up, our exhibitors are setting up, and we’re all getting ready to welcome everyone. We have our fingers crossed for good weather and, with the show open from 10:00am – 5:00pm on Wednesday and Thursday, we’re looking forward to sharing 14 hours of the best in food & drink with you.
Our show is a great opportunity for you to get your hands on something new – whether it’s new stock for your shop, new ingredients for your menu, or new equipment for your kitchen. There are also many new products launching at the show, such as the Salted Chocolate Liqueur from Hay Wines, the new range of Handmade Classic cakes from Truly Treats, the new chilled drinks dispenser from Janes Beverages, and the new tea blends from Hoogly Tea.
If it’s really new you’re after, there are seven Newcomers for you – new companies that have never exhibited at a trade show before. Meet Hamptons Sweet Cakes, Hussh, Macneil’s Smokehouse, Nana Lily’s, Risbury Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oils, Rose Cottage Drinks and When in Rome for the very first time, and discover their products! Look out for the Newcomer logo at the show.
Why not take a break from checking out our exhibitors, and spend a while in the Demo Kitchen, which is hosted by Celebrity Chef Felice Tocchini. He will be joined by Andy Link, Chef Patron of The Riverside Pub at Aymestry, Matt Slocombe, Chef Proprietor of The Crown Inn at Woolhope, and Yvette Farrell, Principal of Harts Barn Cookery School. Take full advantage of their culinary expertise and knowledge, learn from the best, and add new ideas to your menus to please your discerning customers.
With all this on the menu, and exclusive show offers to take advantage of as well, can you afford not to be there? Register now & print your badge, and we’ll see you tomorrow. Or Thursday. Or maybe even both? Why not follow us on Twitter @lovefinefood to see what’s happening during the show?
