Foodservice Expo recently celebrated a 40th anniversary with an event that was bigger and better than ever before.
Once again, our expectations were exceeded with our annual catering exhibition. Our 2018 Foodservice Expo was held at Venue Cymru in Llandudno over two days, Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st of February. The exhibition was attended by 2000 industry professionals from across North Wales and the North West. There was also more exhibitors then ever before, over 170 stands.
The expo is an opportunity for our customers, current & prospective, chefs, restaurateurs, hoteliers and other foodservice industry professionals to meet our suppliers face to face, to sample new products, discuss menu ideas and to be inspired by the thousands of products on offer across our extensive range.
Exhibitors this year included a wide range of national and international brands including a number of new suppliers such as Cornish cheesemakers Curds & Croust, Holy Cow sauces and Doves Farm, specialists in gluten free ingredients. Also new this year was the increase of our non-food product ranges. This included the Churchill stonecast range. Churchill’s Paul Fielding was on hand to demonstrate the application of the classic duck egg glaze to the instantly recognisable stonecast plates. We have also introduced a number of more eco-friendly products to our offering as we aim o help minimise the use of non-recyclable single use products within the catering industry.
Welsh Maid, which is our own brand of ice cream was relaunched with a fresh new look at last year’s expo proved popular again this year. We have also introduced 5 new flavour for 2018 including Unicorn, which is sure to be a hit with kids of all ages and Butterscotch Crunch.
