Local produce on menu at culinary event


Food producers are being given the chance to show off their delicious produce at a special event.

As part of Denbighshire County Council’s March for Business month, food producers from across Denbighshire are inviting hoteliers, chefs, food stores and those in the hospitality industry to find out about all the local produce on their doorsteps.

Taste Local - Meet the Producer 2019 is being organised by Llangollen and Dee Valley Good Grub Club and the Clwydian Range Food & Drink group, in collaboration with Denbighshire and Flintshire county councils.

The event on Tuesday, March 12 at Ruthin Castle will offer food buyers the chance to sample food and drink products from across the region.

Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, leader of Denbighshire County Council, said: “This event offers food businesses such as hotels, B&Bs, cafes and shops a fantastic opportunity to meet local suppliers and source new products for their menus and shelves.

“We have amazing food producers in Denbighshire and we want to help them promote themselves and expand their businesses.

“Research shows that in Wales more than 80 per cent of consumers want more Welsh food and drink available in shops while more than 44 per cent would be prepared to pay more for Welsh produce.

“We are pleased to be working with Llangollen and Dee Valley Good Grub Club and Clwydian Range Food & Drink on this event to support the great work both groups do promoting their members.”

There will also be business support stands at the event.

Blas Lleol - Meet the Producer is part of March for Business, Denbighshire County Council’s annual business month with 25 varied events offering almost 100 hours of content at venues across the county.

* Food buyers and users such as caf├ęs, shops, pubs, B&Bs and restaurants can register to attend by booking via www.denbighshire.gov.uk/marchforbusiness
