The Foodservice Show is coming to NEC Birmingham on 22-23 January 2019. Packed to the brim with innovative features, unrivalled industry insights and most importantly incredible ingredients, it’s a show not to be missed.
At its heart is a mini-wholesale market championing artisanal businesses and exceptional produce. The ‘Covered Market’ will be home to up to 30 butchers, fishmongers, bakeries, dairy specialists and fresh produce suppliers. Head chefs, catering professionals, and food and beverage managers can head to the market to see what’s new, hear the growers’ own stories and taste some of the finest fresh ingredients the UK has to offer.
Alongside the ‘Covered Market’, the show is bringing together over 220 exhibitors to guarantee you’ll find the products and partners you need. Exhibitors will cover all key categories including innovations in stocks, sauces and marinades; alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages; single serve; frozen foods; ambient goods; grab-and-go; baked goods; meat and fish; and dairy products.
Today, there’s nothing hotter than hot beverages. Whether you’re looking to boost your knowledge, or just fancy a quick caffeine fix, ‘Café Commerce’ is the place to be. Meet the biggest names in tea, coffee and equipment, and hear expert speakers explain how to produce a consistent product, appeal to today’s consumer and importantly make more money from your drinks.
Ross Carter, portfolio director at event organiser Fresh Montgomery, said: “As an industry we all want to see the thriving foodservice market continue to innovate, excite and grow. We’re investing more than ever to ensure we have the right features and exhibitors that guarantee visitors leave the show with the relationships, insight and products they need to drive their business forward. And, of course, we’re putting incredible ingredients at the heart of the show, because great food starts with great ingredients.”
The ‘Covered Market’ and ‘Café Commerce’ are just the tip of the iceberg. More interactive and inspirational features are to be announced shortly.
The Foodservice Show will be the first event in the sector to feature an exclusive, dedicated buyers’ club. The ‘HRC 200 Birmingham’ brings together 200 of the most influential procurement professionals in the foodservice and hospitality markets, to meet leading suppliers face-to-face at a minimum of eight prearranged appointments. The programme is officially launching later in the summer, and founding members already include Sodexo, Amadeus, Vision, Spirit, Shine, ABDA, and Bartlett Mitchell.
The Foodservice Show is running alongside The Professional Kitchen Show. Both shows take place at the NEC Birmingham for one incredible event on 22-23 January 2019.
With the most innovative equipment and the finest food combining under one roof, this is the must-attend event on the industry calendar.
