Stocks and sauces manufacturer Essential Cuisine has announced a new partnership with Love British Food.
The British supplier is partnering with Love British Food on a shared mission of promoting locality, provenance, community and quality UK produce, with British Food Fortnight (21 September to the 6 October 2019) providing a focus.
Essential Cuisine’s senior business development chef, Jonathan Harvey-Barnes, explained: “As a champion of working kitchens across the UK, we’re passionate about British produce and proud of our heritage. Love British Food’s ethos very much chimes with our own and we’re excited to be working in partnership with such a fantastic organisation – one that does so much to promote the best of British.”
Alexia Robinson, founder of Love British Food and British Food Fortnight, added: “Now in its 18th year, British Food Fortnight is the national food promotion that runs every autumn inviting communities and organisations across the UK to take part in celebrating the diverse and delicious, high quality food produced in the country. Last year in excess of 1.5 million British meals were served during the Fortnight through schools, universities, hospitals, care homes and corporates. More than 3,000 shops, restaurants and pubs took part, plus, thousands of events in villages and towns.
“Changing times bring both challenges and opportunities for Britain’s farmers and food producers and we are delighted to welcome Essential Cuisine to become a partner and join us to lead the way in celebrating and promoting British food.”
