Gourmet Partners Boosts Export Opportunities for UK Producers

- by Holly Shackleton



Four top speciality food producers from Britain have been launched into the international market by Gourmet Partners

The sales and marketing company took The Bay Tree Food Company, Stag Bakeries, Kent & Fraser and Peter's Yard to ISM in Cologne.

Stephen Hodgetts of Gourmet Partners said,

“In order to obtain exposure and profile in an international market it is vital to exhibit at key trade shows. It is the ideal place to showcase a brand to international buyers and distributors and to obtain interest and listings.

From our experience we realise that it is very expensive for a smaller producer to undertake a trade show in their own right so we put together a concept whereby Gourmet Partners would collaboratively promote carefully selected brands at ISM. This meant that the speciality producer had a good presence at the show but at a fraction of the price it would have cost them to exhibit themselves".
