* Co-op staff celebrate the store's £500,000 facelift last May.
* Shea Ferron will sing at 12 noon on Saturday.
A feast of Welsh produce is set to be served-up by the Co-op’s Llangollen store as it hosts a celebration of food and drink sourced in Wales.
The free event takes place in the car park of the Regent Street store between 10am and 2pm next Saturday, September 14.
Members of the community can meet and sample products from Co-op’s Welsh suppliers including Conwy Brewery, Daoini, Edwards of Conwy, Llaeth Y Llan Village Dairy, Radnor Hills, Village Baker, Welsh Lady Preserves, Wild Trail and Wrexham Lager.
The store, which re-launched in May this year after a £500,000 investment, also welcomes local singer Shea Ferron who will perform at 12 noon, and Llangollen-based chef Jack Hatley who will prepare a selection of dishes and offer recipe suggestions.
The family-friendly event also includes activities for children, including face painting.
The Co-op sells over 500 products made by Welsh suppliers. Its backing for British agriculture also sees the retailer offering Welsh lamb all year round.
Rachel Greenlees, Co-op’s Local Sourcing Buyer, said: “As a community retailer the Co-op is committed to creating value in its communities.
“We are proud of our Welsh heritage, which dates back to the mid-19th century, and sourcing products locally is a cornerstone of our approach. Consumer demand for locally produced food and drink continues to grow, it is made with a mix of quality, pride, history and innovation.
“We continually look for ways to celebrate, showcase and support Welsh produce.”
Mandy Hughes, Manager of the Llangollen store, said: “We are delighted to welcome a flavour of our Welsh suppliers to our store, providing a taste of the great food and drink which is produced in Wales.
“We have had a great response since we relaunched the store in May. The investment was a great way to mark the Co-op’s 175th anniversary year.
“We know that quality, provenance and trust is valued by our Members and customers, and we are really looking forward to welcoming the community to our family-friendly event on September 14.”
