Last call for producers and growers to share Grown in the UK showcase at Welsh Spring Fair

Grown in the UK, an initiative promoting home grown produce, is offering growers and producers an opportunity to exhibit their products at the Royal Welsh Spring Fair.

The initiative launched by David Darrell has secured space in the Horticultural Hall for the Spring Fair for producers wanting to join the scheme. He has also negotiated space at the Royal Welsh Show later in the year.

Darrell said: "Grown in the UK together with the Royal Welsh Show have put together an exhibition package that anyone that grows or uses UK grown products cannot ignore.

The Royal Welsh Show Spring Festival May 16th and 17th is the start of our advertising campaign to make the public more aware of the excellent products produced by UK Growers, both ornamental and edible, and used in UK products."

Grown in the UK approached the Royal Welsh Show and put forward an idea to make the Spring Fair a showcase for UK growers and products.

A large area in the Horticultural Hall is going to be devoted to UK growers and companies that use UK produce in their products under the "Grown in the UK" banner.

There are various options for UK growers to showcase their products. These can be a small individual display or a large stand for the more extensive growers or producers.

The only costs for exhibitors, other than being a member of Grown in the UK (£50 per annum), would be a contribution for signage for their display.  There is also an opportunity for exhibitors to give a talk about their product.

Darrell added "We have a very good arrangement with the Royal Welsh Show and we will have a similar or larger exhibition at the main Royal Welsh Show in July 2015 where over 250,000 are expected to attend so I urge anyone interested to get in touch as soon as possible to discus their options. Welsh growers need not feel left out of their own show either because we also will also have a Grown in Wales section at both events."

Grown in the UK produce hosts a dedicated marketing website devoted to promoting quality food, ornamentals and wood from UK growers, and telling users where they can find where produce is grown, where they can buy it and where they can eat it.

If you are interested in having a space at the Spring Fair then you should contact David Darrell today on 01544 300401 or by email at: grownintheuk@gmail.com
