The most important show in the calendar for buyers of speciality food and the producers who make it, Speciality & Fine Food Fair is a hive of activity over three days with the world’s finest food and drink on offer. One of the most respected logos at the show is round, black and gold with stars emblazoned on it – the Great Taste logo.
John Farrand, MD of the Guild of Fine Food, organisers of Great Taste, says, “We had such a great response from buyers and producers last year that the Great Taste Deli has gone big this year!
