Confex celebrates first Foodservice Fair

Confex is celebrating having held its first ever Foodservice Fair at Stratford Racecourse on 8 June

With their foodservice membership growing and their award-winning CORE own brand going from strength to strength, the Cotswolds-based buying group felt the time was right to stage a foodservice-focused event.

With presentations from Confex’s Tom Gittins, Martin Williams and Matt Norman, plus members and suppliers, the event also featured a trade show showcasing products from 37 suppliers. The fair was extremely well received by attendees, including Stephen Shilling, Business Development Manager at Hill Biscuits, who commented that “If you’re serious about foodservice, then this is a show not to miss.”

Andrew Waller, Managing Director of Deckers Group, added: “The trade event [was] very well organised from start to finish, all the presenters were very knowledgeable and their content was to the point and very topical. The day was a real fast track into the DNA of Confex.”

While Martin Robinson from Nestle Professional, summed up the event by saying that the event “allowed us to cook off our NPD and spend quality time with targeted members. A fantastic day spent educating the group’s foodservice member base and securing new listings.”
