Is your business all about food?
Whether you’re a chef, independent retailer, artisan food outlet or deli kitchen Fine Food Show North can help you grow your business.
Join BBC MasterChef Champion 2018, Kenny Tutt in the FineFoodLive! Theatre, forage the Show for new award-winning ingredients with Nigel Barden, pick up new retail tips from the team at Guild of Fine Food or simply go away with fresh ideas, your questions answered and bag full of goodies.
Serious buyers can meet the producers and chat at length, as well as taste products that will have never been seen before at a trade show. Fine Food Show North introduces new producers every year, and gives you the opportunity to seek out trends in food and drink that will make your shop, restaurant, café or bar a more interesting place to visit.
A key benefit of Fine Food Show North is that it raises the profile of food and drink in Yorkshire. We like to think of ourselves as the European capital of cycling, but we also really want to shine a spotlight on our food and drink and shows like this are a great help for that.
Sir Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire

Fine Food Show North offers a really nice mix of opportunities. Not only do we get to spend time face to face with suppliers that we know and already work with really closely, but also find new and different products, and that’s the experience I’ve had today.

It’s great to have a food show that comes up North and to Harrogate. As an independent food retailer you’re always looking for smaller, unknown artisan retailers, and this place is just full of them, it’s fantastic. Instead of getting a dry sample sent into the office, we come here, we chat to the supplier, that way we learn more about the story of the product and the person behind it.

We’re based in the Midlands and it’s not always easy to find suppliers from up North – Fine Food Show North gives us a nice opportunity to meet those people in a convenient location. It really does bring everybody down from as far as Scotland and up from the South. That’s what you’re looking for and you find it here.

Fine Food Show North was fantastic, it was a brilliant show. We got to talk to an awful lot of people and it was also a good way of seeing how our products were doing and what customers thought.
