We had a very good day at the Mawsley Food Festival yesterday with a good turn out despite the weather – good job it was inside! The mincemeat frangipanes and cranberry crumble pies were a sellout as was the chocolate, chilli & lime loaf cake.The savoury flapjacks went down well and it really does help having some tasters for customers to try before they buy! Some like them some don’t – some see flapjacks as a sweet thing, full of butter, sugar and syrup! Some buy them to have with a bowl of soup for a change, or as they are gluten free, instead of a bread roll.
It’s good to get onto different markets, fairs and other events to get your name out there and promote the business. There is some really good food producers out there who are passionate about what they do using quality ingredients and wanting others to enjoy their products too.
