The Source Trade Show: In Pictures

Source Trade Show

The Source Trade Show – which has been held at Exeter Westpoint over the past couple of days – provides those within the food industry with a fabulous opportunity to discover local brands, both new and established.

We attended the event yesterday, and not only did we come home with our hands full of tempting goodies, but we also met loads of lovely business owners who we’re excited to share with you today!

Below you can take a look at some of the stalls that caught our eye and find out more about the individuals who are working hard to provide us with high quality, local produce:

The Devon Foodie

Delicious cured meats from The Rusty Pig & freshly baked bread

The Devon Foodie

It was great meeting and chatting to these two lovely couples.  The Cowlick Creamery (left) indulgent, specialise in hand-made ice creams and sorbets and offer unique and tasty flavours such as cherry bakewell and baked lemon curd (yum!).  Meanwhile, Happy Butter are relatively new to the South West foodie scene and produce homemade, organic ghee. All of their ghee is made in-house, in small batches and is churned in the traditional way over an open flame.

Beautiful display by Lyme Bay Winery. We can’t get enough of their wines and fruity ciders..

The Devon Foodie

Simple yet stylish display by Devon Distillery. You can read our review of Dappa here.
Mr & Mrs B’s hot sauces officially had our favourite packaging of the day – you can’t really tell on this photo, but the labels are brilliant. Can’t wait to review them!

The Devon Foodie

Had a lovely chat with Kumbites, who make vegan sauces inspired by African flavours. The flavours in the range are a result of it’s founder’s culinary upbringing in Zimbabwe and they’re packed with flavour!

The Devon Foodie

Some of the tastiest fudge around is made by Devon Cottage.
Meanwhile, Lazy Days Tea is a close competitor for the best packaging of the day. We love how each box is shaped like a beach hut – it’s so original!

The Devon Foodie

Pretty edible herbs and an equally gorgeous display by Luscombe Drinks. 

The Devon Foodie

We loved Precious Pods packaging, as it’s so vibrant and colourful – perfectly reflecting their fun and healthy brand of humuses.

Chocolate Heaven Made in Devon pretty much does what it says on the tin. We loved how pretty their chocolates were and they taste great too.

The Devon Foodie

Delicious barbecue rubs and sauces from Eat the Smoke. We can’t wait to give one of these a go..

The bright culinary stars of the future were their, showcasing their skills on behalf of Exeter College and Michael Caines Academy.

The Devon Foodie

After our recent visit to Pig & Palette we’re totally sold on the products made by the lads at Good Game. 

We’re not quite as convinced by the thought of munching on Edible Insects, but we’re definitely up for giving them a go!

The Devon Foodie

Can’t beat a nice sausage roll from Jack Horner’s – we love their black pudding and apple filling. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love Treats with a Twist!

The Source Food Event was a fabulous experience that we would definitely recommend attending next year!

Keep your eyes peeled for our review post on the blog next week, featuring many of the products you can see above.
