Trade show success for MJ Baker Foodservice
This year’s event also marked the company’s 20th year
Newton Abbot-based foodservice wholesaler, MJ Baker Foodservice, is making 20 years in businesses, and recently marked the occasion in the latest of its annual trade shows.
Hosted at Exeter’s Westpoint Arena, the event welcomed 152 suppliers – a 10% increase on last year. Guests were invited to exhibit new products and discussed industry trends.
“Our trade show has a reputation for being about more than just amazing deals, which helps us to increase attendance year-on-year,” commented Jo Baker, Managing Director at MJ Baker. “It’s the one day of the year when our customers can meet face to face with suppliers and discuss trends, opportunities, and challenges, for example, salt reduction and new soft drinks in light of the sugar tax.”
To celebrate turning 20, the company used the trade show as an opportunity to say thank you to customers.
Jo added: “There were glasses of prosecco for guests on arrival, a complimentary bar, and a food court which helped create a buzzing 20th birthday celebration atmosphere.”
