Just back from a fantastic two days at The Suffolk Show where we joined some of the county’s best food producers in the Adnams Food Hall.
It was great to see Sandy quoted in the East Anglian Daily Times earlier this week in an article about the Suffolk Show:
Food and drink retailers have celebrated the region’s growing reputation for top-quality products as they highlighted the importance of the Suffolk Show.
Hundreds of people have packed out the Adnams Food and Drink Experience and Food Hall at the agricultural showpiece in Trinity Park today.
The food industry employs around 9,000 people in Suffolk, contributing to the food, drink and agriculture industry worth £400 million to the region.
The food hall showcased the very best sausages, beers, wines and cheeses produced in the ‘bread basket of England’. A mid-morning rain shower provided a boost in trade as vhisitors sought shelter in the large tent.
One of the food stalls, Scarlett & Mustard, which specialises in dressings, marinades and sauces, won the Food or Drink Marketing and Pride of Suffolk awards at the East Anglian Daily Times and EADT Suffolk Magazine Food and Drink Awards in April.
Sandy Ruddock, owner of the Earl Soham business, said: “The local food industry is very important for Suffolk and the Suffolk Show is a fantastic showcase for local businesses, especially food and drink companies. It provides an enormously wide reach for us from a PR and marketing perspective and is obviously great for sales.”
