Two Weeks – Two Trade Shows

Two Weeks – Two Trade Shows

Successful Trade Shows. We have had the opportunity this past two weeks to share our passion for food with customers at two separate trade shows at both ends of Cornwall. Supply Scilly 2015 On Tuesday 24th February we packed up our stand, some examples of fresh produce and an assortment from our Plough to Plate range and took them across to the annual Supply Scilly Show at the Tregarthens Hotel on the island of St Marys. This was a fantastic event that gave us a chance to catch up with many of our customers on the islands and to introduce them to some products that we have recently added to our range including Buttermilk Fudge and Bad Boy Chilli Mash. We would like to thank Carina, Amy, Robin and Brian and the rest of the Supply Scilly team for putting on such a well organised show and for the wonderful hospitality of the course of our stay. We would also like to thank all the islanders who made the trip over from the off islands (in some pretty rough conditions) for taking the time to visit our stand and for their friendly welcome. Expo South West 2015 After a successful stay on Scilly we rushed our display from the quay at Penzance to the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge, which gave us a chance to display a selection of fresh produce from our range including some stunning products imported through Rungis Direct, some of the early season Canara Farm Organic produce and a selection of the best of the rest from the Westcountry range.
