Local Flavours 2021
March 10 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Local Flavours is the perfect event to meet over 120 local food and drink producers from the Eastern region, sample new tastes as well as a few familiar ones. There’s also opportunities to network with like-minded individuals, and we will entertain you with live cookery demonstrations and much more.
The event is free to attend for business owners, chefs, food buyers, trainees and others working in the industry who are looking to source local produce.
The Eastern Region has a wealth of talented producers creating amazing tastes and flavours for menus and retail shelves, all produced from exceptional ingredients lovingly sourced, and wherever possible, from close to home. Local Flavours is all about education and awareness, creating unique experiences to get local produce on shelves and menus, and ultimately in front of the consumer.
Whilst we all love delicious food and drink, there are some important underlying factors to Local Flavours. Understanding where food and drink comes and food security (protecting the home grown industry) are both high on the agenda. Anyone purchasing locally produced food and drink is also supporting local businesses and directly, with every £1 spent putting 70p back immediately into the economy.
Local Flavours work with producers, councils and other businesses to continuously remind buyers (commercial and consumers) of all the goodness they can enjoy from spending their money on locally produced food and drink.
