Brand New Producers Brand New Trends

Independent Retailers are the talent scouts of the food industry, and new products are the life blood of keeping their shops relevant and interesting.  Buyers are always looking to meet new producers.

The Brand New section of Delishops Discovers Speciality & Fine Food Fair focuses on products and producers that are less than 12 months old. We will be highlighting 7 producers who have something new to offer.  That can be

  • A new producer who has just started up, up to 2 years old
  • A new range of at least 3 products that is about to launch, or has been launched since 1st September 2020

Sustainability – producers and products making a difference

Sustainability is becoming more urgent by the day, and consumers are demanding accountability from the products they buy and the retailers they buy from.  The food and drink industry is well placed to make an asset of these features and communicate them well – we are small and artisan producers, low mileage or local production and intimately connected to the communities serve. 

Buyers need to stay up to date with this planet-saving necessity.  To feature in this section, products must be demonstrated as one or more of:

  • Low carbon footprint in the product
  • Low carbon footprint in the packaging
  • Refill products
  • Responsible or low impact sourcing of ingredients

Gifting and Non-food

Most products in the speciality and fine food sector make good gifts.  This has made gifting and add-on sales a key source of income from for many delis farms shops online and offline.  Most retailers have less experience of these opportunities than of foods themselves, and are looking to explore.

Delishops Discovers Speciality & Fine Food Fair wants to showcase ways for retailers to diversify with gifting and non-food to take advantage of this opportunity.

To feature in this section, products must be demonstrated as one or more of:

  • The product qualifies as a gift
  • The product is a non-food item that could be featured as a gift in a speciality food shop
  • The product is non-food item closely related to a popular food or drink category such as wine, cheese or meat
  • Greetings cards or similar
