Good Food Meets Real Food…
Good Food Ireland members were flying the flag high at the Real Food Festival in London last week. Over 500 producers transformed Earls Court into one of the biggest ever “farmers markets”. Consumers were invited to meet the people that reared the pigs, planted the carrots, milked the cows and crushed the grapes, you can taste their produce, learn about it, then buy it to take home. Among the creme-de-la-creme of producers and restaurateurs were Good Food Ireland members; The Burren Smokehouse, Ballymaloe Country Relish, The Connemara Smokehouse, G’s Gourmet Jams and Ummera Smoked Products.
The exhibitors had a great response from the press and in fact Graham Roberts from the Connemara Smokehouse spoke with many of them on behalf of Good Food Ireland and the Telegraph Online – Food & Wine section interviewed him about his products.
Graham also featured in one of the Delicious Magazine Workshops with Clodagh McKenna and the Sardo brothers (Renato & Sebastiano) and it was so successful he has been asked to do it again next year. Graham and Saoirse said that it was a very successful show; “It was great to see so many producers under one roof and what a choice! It was fantastic”.
Congratulations to all involved!
