Great Food & Drink from across Northern Ireland

Great Food & Drink from across Northern Ireland

You’ll have an opportunity to sample some outstandingly tasty food and drink at the Garden Show. Around 20 companies, most of them Food NI members, will be sampling the broadest range of premium quality food and drink from across Northern Ireland.

We are delighted to be working again with Food NI to present the very best of what local food and drink companies are creating. All the food and drink on show has been produced here by dedicated local companies, many of which have won national acclaim for their hard work and sharp focus on premium taste.

The show provides an ideal platform for Food NI and local producers to reach out to people here. You can savour the distinctive flavours of a host of beverages – gin from Short cross in Crossbar; vodka and fruit liqueurs from Ruby Blue in Lisburn; cider from Long Meadow in Loughgall and Kilmegan in Dundrum; craft beer from Lacada Brewery in Portrush and craft lemonade from Papas Minerals in Bangor. Ballymena’s Granny Shaw will be sampling superb fudge.

There’s delicious dry-cured bacon produced by Kennedy Bacon in Omagh; premium beef from Castlescreen Farm from Dwnpatrick; fresh griddle-baked breads from Dromore’s Krazibaker; salsa and olives from Tom and Ollie in Ballymena with culinary oils from Burren Balsamic in Richill and Harnett’s Oils in Waringstown, jams, relishes and chutneys from Erin Grove in Enniskillen. Indie Fudie of Comber will be showing great local cheese from Young Buck in Newtownards, Kearney Blue in Castlereagh, and Dart Mountain in Dungiven.

Michelle Shallow, Chief Executive of Food NI commented,

“We want shoppers to put our local food and drink first and thereby help the growth of what is already our biggest and most dynamic industry especially in this Brexit period and beyond. It’s about assisting the growth of our community and its people. Greater sales of our food and drink will strengthen the local economy and create more jobs for local people. It makes good business sense to buy local products because they offer outstanding taste as well as provenance and wholesomeness.”

Find out for yourself just how great our local food and drink really is. You’ll also have a chance to meet the producers and share their fascinating stories.
