Pioneer Puts On Spectacular Food Show
24th January 2019 Paul Andrews
Pioneer Foodservice is a well-established family food company and is celebrating 141 years in business by holding a catering trade show for its customers.
Held on Sunday 24th and Monday 25th February at The Shepherds, Rosehill in Carlisle, the show is open to those working in the catering and hospitality trade. With over 1,300 visitors to their last show in 2017, this event proves to be a popular and much anticipated event.
The show will see over 60 regional and national suppliers showcasing their product ranges, including Pioneer’s own farm-assured meats. Manager Director of Pioneer Foodservice, Graham Jenkins says: “This is our 21st show and we’re immensely excited about this year’s event – we think it’s going to be the best so far. With a wide choice of quality products from national and regional suppliers on show, visitors will be treated to an event where we come together to celebrate our passion for food.”
With well-known brand names such as Whitby Scampi, Heinz and Nestlé in attendance, the Carlisle-based company is proud to be a supplier of established household names. Long-established products will mix alongside some new product innovation as Pioneer is always keen to be at the forefront of trends to ensure customers are always ahead of the game. From vegan and gluten free foods to food packaging made from plants, there will be a wide range of innovation showcased.
Pioneer recently picked up regional and national Family Business Awards, including the North & Northern Ireland Family Business of the Year Award at the national awards run by Family Business United, acknowledging its ongoing support and promotion of local entrepreneurs and business owners. Many products which are produced in the north of England will be on show and suppliers will not only be enticing customers with their delicious products but offering substantial discounts for orders taken at the show.
Graham says: “We invite all caterers to come along to the event as big savings can be made on the day. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet our suppliers and get to know their product ranges."
“As well as sampling the range of grocery, chilled and frozen goods at the show, visitors will be able to try our own Lakeland beef and a variety of sausages, including our famous Cumberland sausage of course!”
The show is open from 1pm to 5.30pm on Sunday 24th February and 10.00am to 5.00pm on Monday 25th February. The full show guide with all relevant information is available on the Pioneer website here
