LOCAL FLAVOURS 2019


 Local Flavours 2019 – celebrating 7 years of supporting 

the food industry in the region

Wednesday 25th September 2019, 11am-5pm, Norfolk Showground Arena 

We are pleased to announce that for the 3rd year running we will be a headline sponsor of Local Flavours 2019.

Recent research suggests the UK only grows and produces a third of what is needed to feed the population, leaving a heavy reliance on importing. Whilst we appreciate there is a demand for the exotic there is also an increasingly important need to support the local food and drink industry. 

The Eastern region has a wealth of producers delivering exceptional tastes and flavours for the consumer and trade selling through traditional and non-traditional routes nationwide and further afield. Local Flavours is now celebrating its 7th year and supports around 120 producers by getting them in front of hundreds of buyers from the hospitality, catering, retail and tourism industries, including major players from across the UK. 

The event has in the past contributed tens of thousands of pounds to the local economy and this year is expected to be no different. Alongside the producer exhibition, there is a full programme of support activity including training and demonstrations, business support services and VIP receptions.

If you work in the food and drink industry and are responsible for sourcing local produce for your business register to attend today by emailing info@localflavours.co.uk or by calling 01603 702374, tickets are free but you must register ahead of the event.

Success for HCA East Anglian Branch

Thursday, 25 April 2019 10:09:39 Europe/London

HCA Forum 2019 

HCA FORUM 2019


Celebrating a fantastic win for HCA East Anglian Branch

The East Anglia Branch were surprised and delighted to have been selected as the Chairman’s Choice in recognition for the progress made during the last year by the hard work from the Committee and branch members, it has been a true team effort.

Over the years the Branch has held regular meetings but attendance was generally overwhelmed with suppliers and professional operators showing little support or enthusiasm. Clearly, the Branch was not engaging with Full Members in a meaningful manner.

Being aware of this decline, the Branch committee, drawing in help from Members and suppliers, organised a study day. This event proved to be a big success with over 80 attending, most of whom were operators and healthcare professionals. For the committee and Branch in general, this was an encouraging message.

As a result of this success, in addition to Branch meetings, a ‘Work Shop’ was organised related to waste management. Another success, with high attendance. We also learned that a half day ‘Work Shop’ was preferable to a full study day.

The real mark of progress was in November when the AGM, usually supported by no more than about 10, was this year at 26, a huge improvement.

Listening to Full Members, the coming year's calendar includes a real mix of topics, from engaging with catering colleges, tackling the plastic revolution, inviting patients to discuss their eating experience and a dietetic presentation. Of course, we will be taking time out to socialise at Newmarket Races and our Christmas event is already booked.

On winning the Chairman’s Choice the Committee have been overwhelmed with congratulatory emails from our members, which is an encouraging endorsement we are fulfilling the member's requirements.

The committee will continue to meet regularly every 4 to 6 weeks to monitor progress. 2019 will be a year of progress, improving communication, particularly by sharing agendas and events with our neighbouring HCA Branches. All are welcome.

Barry Wells
Branch Chair
