Wholesaler supports customers to celebrate British Food Fortnight

Brakes has created a new range of materials to help operators capitalise on British Food Fortnight, the annual celebration of British food, which takes place from 17 September to 2 October 2022

The materials, which consist of posters, menu templates and recipe ideas, are designed to help venues take part in British Food Fortnight which celebrates British ingredients and supports British farming.

Businesses can also access seasonal guides and fruit and veg calendars as well as grower stories, with insight and information from producers such as Naylor Farms, which has been providing quality British products since 1909.

“With British Food Fortnight just around the corner, we’ve created a raft of resources that will enable caterers to capitalise on the event across their menus,” said Cathy Amos, Head of Customer Marketing, Brakes.

“A selection of menu templates will allow them to highlight British dishes and ingredients, perhaps using some of the fantastic recipes that our development chefs have been busy creating for menus in care homes, pubs, coffee shops, hotels and schools.

“British produce remains a very important aspect of menu development, ranging from very specific locally sourced produce to a more generic British feel, depending on the customers’ requirements and their consumers’ perspective of provenance.  But, however they incorporate British on their menu, British Food Fortnight is the perfect time to celebrate it.”
