Coral Rose: ‘Orders were nearly double those taken last year.’

The celebrations included a trade exhibition, an ‘It’s a Knockout’ competition and a gala dinner.

The trade show saw over 108 foodservice brands on display, while interactive demonstrations were held for more than 260 delegates representing the group’s membership.

Following the exhibition, 22 teams, comprising 220 members and suppliers, took part in the fun competition, wearing costumes and keeping to the theme of the TV show.

The gala dinner was hosted by comedian Brian Conley.

Reflecting on the event, CRG managing director Coral Rose said: “It’s fitting that this year’s annual event was an absolute, all-round knockout on all levels.

“The exhibition offered huge value to suppliers as an arena to demonstrate products to our members. Orders were nearly double those taken last year.”
