The International Food & Drink Event at London Excel 21-23rd March 2022 was a Foodies idea of heaven and this year the show had the additional benefit of being co-located with the London Produce show, Pub 22 and the Hospitality & Restaurant show as well as the IFE Manufacturing show which was important as buying local and traceability becomes more popular.

Durham-Duplex were delighted to be one of the invited exhibitors showing their wares to the growing number of small food producers that visited the shows and whose brands are growing out of their kitchens and into small scale manufacturing. It is these little acorns that will help drive the UK’s Food and Drink sector for the next decade as we seek to make the food we eat more local and sustainable.

Alex Smith,  UK Area Sales Manager at Durham-Duplex, said “It had become apparent that the food industry in UK is changing and IFE is the UK’s showcase for the wide variety of products now made and sold here.  IFE is a vertical event with producers, manufacturers and consumers represented and all of them were seeking to modernise and increase their productivity in a sustainable way.  It therefore made sense for Durham-Duplex to be there and support this aspiration by exhibiting at the IFE Manufacturing event where our range of food processing and packaging knives, all being Made in Sheffield, are able to help with this revolution in locally sourced ethical food.” Alex added that  ” I also enjoyed doing some of the tasting tours and we took some chefs knives from local Sheffield Manufacturers which definitely tempted the professional chefs and encouraged them to buy Made in Sheffield products.”
