Tyneside Foodservice customers look to expand their offering

The second annual trade show of Tyneside Foodservice, of Blaydon, Tyne & Wear, attracted almost 500 caterers, chefs and food professionals to the Gateshead International Stadium.

They heard Peter Henderson, sales director of the Fairway Foodservice member, talk about a shift in purchasing patterns.

“The feedback 12 months ago centred on learning about new product ranges,” he said. “This year, suppliers have said that our customers came back with a view to expanding their offering, either by further enhancing the range or doing something seasonal.

“There was a very positive and vibrant atmosphere throughout the day and customers loved the inspirational ideas.

“By taking the time and talking with suppliers they were able to truly understand the different approaches they could take with the products. Suppliers were able to discuss the latest trends and patterns in the industry.”

Tyneside Foodservice, founded in 1979, offers more than 3,500 products across the frozen, chilled, ambient and non-food sectors. It has over 1,000 customers in the north-east.
