Visitor registration has opened for Speciality & Fine Food Fair, as the event prepares to welcome the speciality food industry back to Olympia London on 5-6 September, 2022.

Speciality & Fine Food Fair brings together independent retailers, farm shops, delis, high-end caterers, speciality wholesalers and more to discover the very latest new products and trends in the world of speciality and fine food and drink. This ranges from established speciality brands to start-ups in their early years of operation within the British food and drink sector, in addition to international food and drink brands from countries including Belgium, France, South Korea, Italy and the Netherlands, the Caribbean, and West and Central Africa.

A particular area of note is to be the Discovery Zone, which is dedicated to food and drink brands that have been operating for less than three years. Among the businesses taking part in the Discovery Zone in 2022 are G&Tea, a tea-distilled gin brand; plant-based chewing gum Oh My Gum; luxury free-from ice cream producer Mama Dolce; and blueberry wine Blue Aurora. 

Speciality & Fine Food Fair event manager Nicola Woods commented, ‘The Discovery Zone is a must-attend for visitors to the Fair. It’s a fantastic opportunity to discover unique, new-to-market products and see first-hand the innovative start-ups beginning to make their mark on the industry.’

The exhibitor list is complemented by a seminar programme across three stages. For example, the Food for Thought stage will cover some of the most pressing issues facing the independent retail and speciality food community, from the power of a personalised customer experience to the road to net zero, and from 2022’s supply chain challenges to making the online model work post-pandemic. 

Print and packaging companies will again be present at the show, as the likes of DTM Print and Ktec Group look to highlight and showcase the potential of digital print for specialist and fine food and drink manufacturers.
