Local Flavours 2017 – Celebrating 5 successful years supporting local food and drink producers

Wednesday 27th September - Norfolk Showground Arena.

Launched in 2012 in a farmyard just off the A47, Local Flavours was set up to serve the growing business sector of food and drink producers in the eastern region. To date local producers have acquired new customers and contracts worth tens of thousands of pounds, from meeting thousands of food buyers attending from catering, hospitality, food retail and tourism backgrounds.

The event moved to the Norfolk Showground arena, as it quickly became apparent there was real support and sponsorship from the industry and many local councils. The event has grown to accommodate over 100 producers, business support and other services.   

The show has always been about making contributing to the local economy. In 2016, “Meet the Buyer” slots in a more formal setting was introduced. This proved incredibly popular and encouraged the likes of Tesco, Center Parcs, Morrisons, Makro and many other national brands to join local buyers, giving producers the opportunity to pitch in a more private setting.        

New for 2017 will be a late afternoon business reception, inviting business people outside of food and drink to come along and show their support for the industry. 

There are limited trade stand space still available and registration for buyers to attend is now open. For information visit www.localflavours.co.uk or telephone 01603 702374.
