Get ahead of the game and book YOUR stand with Taste of the West at this year's Speciality and Fine Food Fair, which takes place on 6 – 7 September 2021 at Olympia, London.
The last show in September 2019 was a roaring success and the West Country pavilion was buzzing with buyers and an array of fantastic produce and exhibitors. The show has been running now for 21 years, and is the only trade event in the UK dedicated to helping small food and drink producers take their business to the next level. The event is a fabulous platform for companies just starting out. You will network with other business owners and learn lots to help shape your business in the right way. You will also meet over 10,000 of the best buyers from around the UK all of whom are visiting specifically to source artisan food and drink products. Nothing can beat meeting buyers in person, so they can taste and learn about your product, as well as meet the face behind the brand.

The show mainly attracts high end retail and online retails, gift and hamper buyers, delis, farm shops, high end bars and restaurants as well as fine food wholesalers and distributors.

"Booking an expensive trade show like the Speciality & Fine Food Fair is always a big step, but with good preparation it can really pay off. Part of that preparation is having the right location and with ToTW that is a given! The quality of the leads we generated at this year's show has been excellent and we are very confident that with hard work they can be converted into good, profitable business. Only 3 days after the show has finished we have already decided that the next S&FFF is a must-do trade show for us. See you there!"
"WOW - what a show! This was the best trade show that we have exhibited at. In fact I would say that this was the best trade show that I have exhibited at for any industry that I have worked in (and that's quite a few!)"
