AFT members exhibiting at Speciality & Fine Food Fair 2014

Speciality & Fine Food Fair is the leading UK trade event that exclusively targets food and drink buyers from the speciality and artisan food industry.

Taking place at London Olympia on 7th – 9th September, the 2014 show will be packed with exciting new products and will also feature cooking demos, seminars and business forums.

Set within Speciality & Fine Food Fair, the Speciality Chocolate Fair is a showcase of luxury and gourmet chocolate. Source products from around 65 fine and artisan chocolate producers from the UK and the rest of the world.

The Artisan Food Trail is not exhibiting this year but we are planning to visit as this is one of the many trade events that gives us the chance to catch up with some of our members as well as meet other artisan food and drink producers.

It looks like we're going to have jam-packed day as there are no less than 17 of our members exhibiting! With numbers like that, there's the potential for The Artisan Food Trail to have its own area next time. That's something we'll need to talk to the event organisers about to check the feasibility of such a thing.

We've created a handy table, below, which includes the AFT members exhibiting at the show.
If you're visiting and are a business looking to source the best artisan food and drink we invite you to visit our member's stands to discuss your requirements.
