Menu - September 6th - Specialty Food Fair

The Specialty Food and Chocolate Food Fair is being held as we speak. Sunday 5th, Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th out at Olympia with over 550 individual exhibitors. We went out yesterday and had a good look around and it was amazing and inspirational.

Not just seeing our own suppliers such as Tea Pigs and Villanova, but also seeing the range of food and beverage avalable from many small independent suppliers. People who are all passionate about their business, who believe that their products is or will be one of the best and that there is a market for it.

As one of those small independents (though not exhibitng) I have a lot of respect for those who put in all the hours, reasearch, commitment, lack of sleep, money, passion, enthusiasm and belief. Plus, it is amazing to see how many options there are out there!! It is astounding where the food industry has come over the past 20 years in the UK, and it can only get better. I saw a quote out there "it is better to have eaten, than to eat". My sentiments exactly.
