The third Food & Drink Trade Show took place at The Centaur, Cheltenham Racecourse, at the beginning of June. The show was 20% bigger than 2014 with a unique mix of inspirational speciality food & drink products, from a wide range of exhibitors; from the small and regional, to those who trade throughout the UK and internationally.
“For a new exhibitor it was a great introduction to the food and drinks industry, we learnt a lot in a very short period of time. Great show”. Catherina Rolinson. Lovells Vineyard/Elgar Wines
