National Awareness Days Create Sales Opportunities...

While it’s easy to be cynical about the latest Somerset Sausage Month or Aubergine Day of the week, the truth is, many of our British producers work tirelessly to stay afloat and sustain the growth of food production on UK shores, especially during these unsettling times.

So let's make a point to celebrate them more this year. Raising awareness of the importance of local craftsmen, makers in our communities is a great way of supporting producers. We also think it offers opportunities to plan annual sales drives, product promotions in your store, engaging window displays or promotional hotspots.

Not only will it capture shopper’s interest, but you’ll probably find you sell more in the process
