Products to discover at Fine Food Show North 2019
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!

Great small show, showcasing new and up-and-coming producers. Great to taste the Great Taste Supreme Champion (Mount Mayon), Yorkshire Flapjack and Slab Bakery in particular.

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.

It has been wonderful to be at Fine Food Show North. I found out about it through Invest NI and I am delighted to be here. This is one of the best events I have ever been to, superbly organised, fantastic atmosphere, the range of products is fantastic and there’s been an impressive range of visitors from private small shops to larger businesses. It is a credit to the organisers, there is so much energy and passion behind the show and it is a pleasure to be here.
