Farm Shop & Deli Show 2016
As some of you may have heard – for the second year in a row, the Goodlife team of Vegenistas took a road trip from Veg HQ down to the Farm Shop & Deli Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
Armed with some cooking utensils, aprons, a freezer and some veg crates, we set up our stand, ready for the thousands of people who were due to head through the doors of the exhibition over the course of three days.
We’re pretty impressed with the stand, if we do say so ourselves!
We spoke to so many interesting people during the show (a quick wave and a massive thank you to those of you who came to say hi!) and sent them on their way with some product samples to eat at home. It was an incredibly busy few days for all of us – keeping up with demand for cooked food samples was quite tricky!
We showcased 11 products – our French Bean & Spinach Sausages with Wensleydale Cheese, Cauliflower & Mature Cheddar Sausages with Truffle Oil, Tomato & Mozzarella Sausages with a Hint of Basil, Beetroot & Feta Sausages with Roasted Fennel, Leek & Caerphilly Glamorgan Sausages with Wholegrain Mustard, Picador Parsnip & Sweet Carrot Nut Burgers with Crunchy Cashews, Spicy Veg Bean Burgers with a Kick of Chipotle Chilli, Mushroom & Spinach Kievs with a Creamy Garlic & Cheese Sauce… as well as three new products whose identities are being kept a secret for a little while longer!
The favourite products sampled during the show were the Mushroom & Spinach Kiev, French Bean & Spinach Sausage, and one of our new products.
Many of the lovely lot we spoke to told us they stock our products in their farm shops and delis, or served them in their cafe’s and restaurants. Those who hadn’t yet heard of the Goodlife brand gave us incredibly positive feedback with many people offering to place orders there and then!
It’s an incredible exciting time for the Goodlife brand – we’re selling into more and more farm shops, deli’s, cafe’s, restuarants, schools and hotels every single day – so it won’t be long before our inspiringly vegtastic vegetarian sausages, burgers and kievs are available in all corners of the UK.
