The fifth annual London Produce Show and Conference took place last week at Grosvenor House in the heart of the U.K. capital.
Hosted by the Fresh Produce Consortium and Produce Business magazine, the three-day event included educational panel discussions, a trade fair and industry tours, bringing together a range of people from across the entire fruit and vegetable sector in an intimate environment.
The sister event of the Amsterdam Produce Show and New York Produce Show kicked off on June 6 with a Food Service Forum and seminar on accessing the U.K. market, followed by an opening cocktail reception.
The next day began with a Thought Leader Breakfast Panel hosted by Perishable Pundit Jim Prevor, after which attendees headed to the trade exhibition. Thursday also featured a series of chef demonstrations, a student program, a media program, and even a visit by the U.S. Ambassador to the U.K., Woody Johnson.
Concluding the event on Friday were four industry tours, including a visit to a wholesale market, a fruit farm, some of London’s most innovate foodservice outlets, and leading retailers.
