This is Cumbria at Farm Shop & Deli Show, NEC

30 March 2020 – 01 April 2020
Farm Shop & Deli Show, NEC

MORE INFORMATION

The ‘This is Cumbria’ group are preparing to attend the Farm Shop & Deli Show at the NEC for the second year in March with their branded destination stand, following the success of their first trade event in April 2019.

The initiative was formed in 2018 when a group of Cumbrian producers set out to create a ‘big impact’ trade stand that would position the very best of the county’s food, drink and produce in front of thousands of key buyers. The initiative was supported and coordinated by The Family Business Network and Thomas Jardine & Co, alongside sponsors Cartmell Shepherd and Enterprise Answers. Many other local businesses that work with the sector also pledged their support for the initiative, assisting with branding, design and printing.

This year, with four new Cumbrian producers on board and the continued support pledged by sponsors, the group aims to build upon this year’s achievements, developing national awareness and championing Cumbrian brands.

The Family Business Network will be attending the show and coordinating the supporting marketing events, taking place at the NEC between 30 March and 01 April. Further details of This is Cumbria can be found here and further information about the Farm Shop & Deli can be found here.
