County's Food & Drink offer to be showcased at major show

Warwickshire’s rich and diverse Food and Drink offer will be showcased at a prestigious show next month.

Warwickshire Food and Drink will host a ‘Taste of Warwickshire’ stand at the NEC Farm Shop and Deli Show at the National Exhibition Centre from April 29 to March 1.

The stand will provide a platform for Warwickshire producers to reach a national and international audience. Among producers from the county to be represented on the stand will be Blabers Hall Vineyard, Cureights Charcuterie, Warwickshire Gin, Windmill Brewery and Brubl Brewery. 

The stall will promote why Warwickshire is a great place for food and drink producers to locate and provide an opportunity for establishment buyers to source local food and drink produce. Meanwhile, anyone looking for new, well-established or niche products for their tables or shelves could find a visit to the show invaluable for ideas about sourcing quality produce while reducing food miles.

Warwickshire’s producers are renowned for their quality which makes a big contribution to the economy of the county and region:

In Warwickshire:

  • our cows produce more than 101 million pints of milk each year.
  • we grow enough wheat to make 524 million loaves of bread each year. 
  • our farms generate £190 million for the regional economy, not including the contribution made by those working in allied industries and the wider food and drink sectors in our county and market towns.
  • We have around 435 cereal farms, covering an area of 74,500 hectares, and 45 horticultural businesses covering over 1,700 hectares.

Warwickshire County Council’s Rural Policy & Commissioning Officer, Abi Culley, said: “The NEC Farm Shop and Deli Show attracts a national and international audience and Warwickshire Food and Drink is delighted to offer a platform for our producers to raise their profile and for the county’s great food and drink offer to reach such a large audience.”
