Farm Shop & Deli show showcasing artisan food and drink producers
The annual event for the speciality food and gifting sector, offers visitors the opportunity to meet with over 400 suppliers that encompass the core food categories from chocolate, hot drinks and olives, to condiments, meat and preserves.
As the show has developed, a growing and popular focus on other areas of the speciality market has also evolved. Exhibitors representing categories including stationery, candles, furniture and home goods will be present, as well as those offering equipment, labelling and packaging.
Artisan food continues to be at the forefront of consumers’ minds, especially with the political environment in the UK and concerns around sustainability and food provenance which are set to fuel the major food trends of 2019.
The main trends predicted are represented by the Farm Shop & Deli Show; with gourmet food; low waste; healthy and allergen free options; and lesser-known cuts of meat all topping the list, alongside an elevated consumer interest in understanding the provenance of their food and the process by which it is made. It is anticipated that 2019 will see diners embracing seasonal produce, foraged food and artisan products that have a strong marketing and sourcing story behind them.
In addition to the top produce, equipment and gifting options on show, visitors will also be able to listen to industry leaders speaking at the Farm Shop & Deli Live Stage.
