region is bursting with talented food and drink producers, from
table cupcake makers to some of the largest food businesses in the UK. All
contribute to a diverse and flavoursome mix of great food, making the area one
of the most talented food producing areas in the UK.
Local Flavours 2014 is all about making it easy for food and drink
buyers keen to support local producers, to meet and sample their goods. The
idea of meeting in one place will relieve, for many, the pressure of trying to
source locally in such a diverse market.
Local Flavours 2014 is taking place on the 23rd September 2014
at the Royal Norfolk Showground, just off the A47.
The event is by invitation for trade buyers and potential customers of
the 60 plus stand holders exhibiting. Attendees are invited from hotels and
restaurants, catering firms, tourist attractions, anyone responsible for food
in the hospitality arena plus food retailers, locally and nationally, passionate
about sourcing produce from the region.
Following the success of the 2013 and first Local Flavours, the event
has moved to the showground to accommodate more stands as well as to include
cooking demonstrations and a business advice area.
“The farmers, growers and
food processors locally are constantly innovating and bringing great food
products to market. Local Favours gives producers an unrivalled opportunity to
showcase their brands to professional buyers from local hotel and restaurants
to major retailers and take their products into new markets. Anglia Farmers are
very pleased to support the event”. Clarke Willis, CEO, Anglia Farmers.
“The RNAA strongly supports food and farming in the county therefore it was
natural that we would get involved with this event. Local Flavours provides a
great platform for companies from across the county, whether small scale
artisan producers or large agricultural businesses, to talk to buyers and
champion the outstanding food produced in Norfolk.” Said Greg Smith,
Chief Executive of Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association.
Valerie Watson-Brown, Director The Lively Crew and BOLD
Directories, “Local Flavours 2014 is totally focused on the food and drink
sector and supporting local producers. Our job as matchmakers is made easier by
the encouragement and offer of support we have had from organisations willing
to help make it a success. We already work with food companies across the fresh
produce supply chain in the UK and abroad and we understand the importance of supporting
this regions food industry, retaining it as an exciting and innovative growth
area with huge employment potential for young people.”
