A major new food and drink show for Northern Ireland has been launched, with a date set for October 25th-27th at the King’s Hall Pavillion in Belfast.
The Food & Drink Show Northern Ireland 2013 is expected to showcase the best local products, artisan foods and catering/kitchen equipment available across Northern Ireland. As well, there will be a lineup of demonstrations, talks and workshops, with appearances from industry figures and celebrity chefs, including Rachel Allen and Nevin Maguire.
The event has already attracted sponsorship from some of the biggest food and drink companies in Northern Ireland, including Moy Park, Tesco, JN Wine and the Department of the Environment.
Show Director Judith Brannigan explained: “Dedicated to the enjoyment of all things epicurean, the show will offer visitors a delicious mix of great produce, celebrity guests and live demonstrations.
“For businesses that sell quality food, drink and related lifestyle products to the domestic consumer – through retail, directly or online – it will provide an unrivalled opportunity to promote and sell their products to their target end user.”
In addition leading local food and drink experts, including representatives from some of the show’s exhibitors, will take to the Love Food Hate Waste Open Kitchen stage, sponsored by the Department of the Environment’s Rethink Waste campaign, to share their knowledge of products, produce and techniques.
Tickets for the show are now available at the show’s website www.foodanddrinkshowni.com
