Scotland’s Speciality Food Show, the largest trade sourcing event for the speciality food market in Scotland, have announced their January 2020 event.
The show, run in conjunction with Scotland’s Trade Fairs, will be from 19-21 January 2020, and will be based in the Scottish Events Campus in Glasgow.
Scotland’s Speciality Food Show aims to showcase artisan creators from all over the UK, and includes a full programme of awards, workshops, networking and talks.
Scotland’s Speciality Food Show 2020 promises two new events in their programme. Premiering at the show are Flavours of Fife and Talking Shop. The Flavours of Fife section will showcase at least 11 companies such as Coul Brewing, Lindores Abbey, Rumburra Scotland, Christopher Trotter and Burntisland Fish Co. Orkney, Shetland and Northern Ireland, whilst the Talking Shop area will be a place for those attending the fair to get advice from industry experts on retail and business, as well as simply chat to them in more light-hearted sessions.
The Show aims to inspire with a Launch Gallery showcasing young such as Woodmill Game, Badachro Distillery, Smoky Barrel Jerky, Grace Chocolates changing lives and Isle of Mull seaweed.
The show will also include ‘Nessie’s Den’ – a version of Dragon’s Den exclusive to Scotland’s Speciality Food Show – where exhibitors will get the chance to present their products to a panel of retail experts for their feedback.
Show director Mark Saunders added: “The aim of this Food Show is to ensure we are a one-stop Show for all independent retailers, both food and gifts, in Scotland and northern England. Here they can be inspired, place orders and ensure they are ahead of the game for the coming season.”
