British Food Fortnight – Supporting our local producers.
Not only do the crops grow fresher, more local and larger – so does the event! (What better celebrations could there be other than celebrating food?)
We’re all about supporting great causes at Supercity, which is why we’re shedding light on British Food Fortnight!
Sustainably sourced produce, organic, local and lending a helping hand with reducing Britain’s carbon footprint?
That’s right – British Food Fortnight provides the UK public with all of the above. (In fact, they have been since 2002 – now that’s impressive!)
British Food Fortnight is the biggest national celebration of British food and 2019 marks the 18th year the event has returned to our farms and towns.
Communities and organisations are invited to celebrate the diverse and delicious food this country has to offer.
Who is involved?
Anyone and everyone – you can be too!
We’re doing our part to get involved this autumn. We’re revamping our menu’s and offering guests British produce only.
Community support, farming ambassadors and Michelin-star chefs will also be kicking off this period of goodness.
Not only will we be rolling up our sleeves, Masterchef winner, Jane Devonshire, Michelin-star chef, Phil Howard and the world’s finest chef, Raymond Blanc OBE will show their support this September.
How to get involved too:
Step right up!
By making a special effort to seek out British food, you’re one step closer. Shop local!
Sourcing your food locally not only allows you to track and find out more about your ingredients, but you’re also supporting your local economy.
This is tastier, better for the environment and better for your health.
Fact of the day: Foods that are in season contain nutrients, minerals and trace elements that our bodies need.
Did somebody say competition?
We’re kick-starting our very own competition in celebration of this foodie fortnight.
Host your very own #locallysourced dining experience in one of our suites during British Food Fortnight. This is from 21st September – 6th October.
Next step: Snap the night away! Take plenty of photo’s and tag us using @supercityuk.
Last but not least: Email the saucy details of your event to firstname.lastname@example.org by 18th October!
You’ll have to wait and see… We may even extend your stay for a night!
That sure is enough to get us sprinting down to our local grocers – we hope you’ll join us on our quests too!
Explore, pick and grow your own!
