Dozens in attendance at Country Range Group event

More than 120 members flocked to Country Range Group’s latest Business Development Day

Held at Crewe Hall Hotel & Spa, the two-day event saw 32 suppliers showcase their products and have face-to-face meeting with wholesale representatives to discuss performance, NPD, market trends, future plans and hold live demonstrations and sampling.

Some of the brands involved in the event exhibiting their latest and greatest products included Three Oceans, Nestlé Professional, Waldron’s Patisserie, Arla, Tideford Organics, Danora, as well as Delifrance who showcased innovative ‘thaw and serve’ products.

Foodservice wholesalers are seeing an increase in demand for high quality ‘thaw and serve’ products as it allows them to keep the standard of their offering high with little input required from staff and keeping energy costs low.

“It’s been a difficult few years for the foodservice sector and with no respite in sight, it’s vital that events such as our BDD are still taking place so our members and suppliers can come together to discuss future plans and activities,” said Head of Trading Dean Pendlebury.

“The turnout for our latest event at Crewe Hall was fantastic with some exciting new products unveiled by visiting suppliers and lots of orders placed by delegates so it was once again another roaring success.”
