A first timer to Fine Food Show North and I will be returning next year. FFSN was a great show. Well organised, well sized and it was clear to me that the organisers had been mindful of selecting a wide variety of producers to fully cover all food and drink. I found all producers to be engaging and passionate about their ranges and was especially excited to learn about the many new coffee roasters within the local area. Expect to see some of these in Sourced Market’s in the near future! Emma Murphy, Sourced Market

It’s been great to meet small independent retailers, as we want to access them to spread the word about Sea Chips and this is a really good place to connect with them. We’ve been visited by Sourced Market and a MasterChef finalist also came by, so it has been great to have big names and smaller retailers visit our stand. Dan Pawson, Sea Chips
