Why @FoodAdo loves brilliant @FoodNetworking and its opportunities for small artisan producers

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Being a small artisan food producer can be challenging sometimes.

When you start a new business everything around you looks big, difficult and new. Sometimes one can feel it is too difficult.

Luckily artisan producers are not alone.

The Food Network is a brilliant concept that can help each artisan producer to connect with the food industry and stop feeling like they are fighting alone against 1000 giants.

The Food Network, like FoodAdo, can support artisan producers and help them to have successful small businesses.

FoodAdo is actually charmed by the Food Network and its brilliant people: a clever mix of expertise, professionals and fun!

The Food Network covers all areas of the food industry (ingredient producers, manufacturers, branding and packaging specialists, caterers, legal labelling experts, distributors…)

Non-members can access several of their online Forums, view the discussions and place their own discussion.

The Food Network started in the late 1990’s when it became apparent that many food and food related businesses around London would like to network with peers but often found it difficult to commit to regular meetings because of work pressure. So the idea of an electronic forum was formed…….

One immediate advantage was that this meant there was no geographical barrier to the Network and businesses from across the UK and some from Europe signed up.

The group grew by word of mouth and reputation for helping businesses and being incredibly good value for money. The Network continues to expand grow and offer more services to its members

Speciality and Fine Food Fair 2010, Olympia London

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

FoodAdo loved the Speciality and Fine Food Fair 2010, it was just irresistible!

The FoodAdo Team was enchanted by the friendly people, the best specialities and the clever producers coming from all over the UK (not to mention those who were coming from oversea!)

Great selection of foods, magical chocolates and sweets, surprising vegan, vegetarian and organic products.

The strike? It did not stop hungry foodies from attending: the place was very busy, till closing time. The Fair’s staff had to ask visitors to live because people would not go away at closing time (6pm).

It was so good, they just couldn’t have enough of it!

(chocolate) London Calling

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

 

Imagine a vibrant and busy fair, the crowd flowing through the stands and the festive atmosphere.

Then, add chocolate, lots of gorgeous chocolate, in every possible form and shape.

Do you know where you are?

You are at the South Bank Chocolate Festival with the FoodAdo Team!

Yes, we could not resist the chocolate calling.

We browsed through the colourful stands, sampled unusual combinations of flavours, admired unique creations and learned new ways to think chocolate with clever maitres chocolatiers.

The festival was full of irresistible moments, like an elegant VIP reception (Yael Rose could not make it more special), where producers could present their chocolatey creations and tell the secrets behind them.

Damian Allsop presented a tasty passion fruit speciality and guided the audience through an exciting tasting: starting from the moment the truffle broke in the mouth and passion fruit showed its strong character, getting to the instant when coffee and dark chocolate added their final touch to the experience.

More browsing and more chocolate, from stand to stand, discovering new food trends (so many!), new attractive ways to enjoy chocolate, gift ideas and friendly flavours. The chill of a an early spring day was not a problem: Jaz and Juls prepared mugs of caramel hot chocolate that kept the Team warm and willing to explore more and more and more!

At FoodAdo, we cannot wait for the next event!
