Local flavours 2013 - A Fresh Pod Production
On Tuesday 10th September at Anglia Farmers and on the site of the proposed Norfolk Food Hub, the Fresh Pod team are organising a food buyer meet supplier event (locally sourced produce). The event has been organised to celebrate the quality of food produced in the Eastern region and there will be over 50 local food and drink producers showcasing their produce to over 400 food buyers from across the UK - including many major supermarkets, catering companies and wholesalers as well as hotels, tourist attractions and restaurants.
The Fresh Pod team will be at the event and if you are in the Eastern region on Tuesday and would like to meet up with someone from the team in a beautiful surrounding with an abundance of food and drink to enjoy and on tap, please let me know so I can add you to the guest list. If you cannot make it and you would like someone from Fresh Pod to meet up with you on home turf in the near future we can organise that too.
We have a busy events month ahead.
Green Build 2013
Fresh Pod will be exhibiting this weekend at Green Build set in the beautiful grounds Felbrigg Hall in North Norfolk, 7th and 8th September. The event brings businesses together with consumers keen to keep their carbon footprint to a minimum. With the average family throwing away £480 of fresh produce into landfill every year the Fresh Pod consumer kit is a popular item over the two days. If you are relaxing in north Norfolk over the weekend do come and look us up at green Build.
IMPA Shipping Conference 2013
Fresh Pod is now protecting hundreds of merchant ships kitchen stores across the globe. Ethylene causes havoc at sea in the ships mix fresh fruit and vegetable stores. Premature ripening means the crew are often left with less than fresh produce which is often thrown away before being eaten. Fresh Pod 18 x 7 hanging filters have been installed in many global shipping companies stores ensuring the crew eat fresher and crispier produce over the many weeks they are at sea. Fresh Pod will be on Garrets stand at the IMPA Shipping Conference on the 11th and 12th September in London. If you are in the Westminster area over the two days and would like to catch up please let me know.
