The evening, attended by a diverse range of food, drink, and hospitality businesses, with some incredible stories, was a relaxed evening of conversation, business, and community. Maisie, Head Chef at The Long Table, produced an excellent Dahl, pickles and delicious bread baked in house, and with no seating plan, all the attendees sat down at long tables and began to chat.

South Shore is in the process of casting for a brand new series that’s along the lines of Dragon’s Den, a friendlier version, focusing on food producers. So they are looking for Britain’s best small food and drinks businesses with new, innovative products that deserve to be on shop shelves. They could be chocolatiers, bakers, sauce makers, alcohol producers and everything in between. This exciting new series could give them a unique business opportunity and the chance to showcase their amazing products on national television.
Cotswold Taste, the co-operative organisation supporting food and drink producers in and around the Cotswolds, has teamed up with the world’s largest food waste app, Too Good To Go.
Any food or drink member of Cotswold Taste which routinely has surplus stock can sign up to the app – which aims to reduce food waste – and they will not have to pay an admin fee for the first year. It’s one of many benefits the new board of Cotswold Taste is bringing on stream for co-operative members.
