The ‘Meat 2 Trade’ Show offers a unique opportunity for agri-food
suppliers to showcase their products and services to over 3000
decision makers from the food manufacturing, butchery, food
and drink and retail sectors. The show will attract visitors from
throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland and will run over two
days in the Eikon Exhibition Centre, Balmoral Park, Sprucefield,
Lisburn, Northern Ireland.
Meat 2 Trade is delivered by Butchery Excellence
International and follows on from the success
of [email protected]
2018, and Meat the Buyer in 2017,
held in Belfast & Monaghan.
The World Butchers’ Challenge attracted over 3,000 visitors to the
show last year. This year, in addition to the butchery
focus, the show has been expanded to appeal to the wider food
manufacturing sector. Already we have a varied range of agrifood
suppliers signed up to showcase their products, services,
technologies and skills to the sector. The event will combine the
very best of Meat, Artisan Butchery and Food Manufacturing, and
provide a vital showcase of the latest products, services and ideas.
It will offer industry leaders and buyers a ‘one stop shop’ where they
can find out about exciting industry developments.
Our new, accessible location will enable us to host over 100
exhibiting companies, with two food demonstration arenas and
a competition arena. Events planned to date include a ‘friendly’
butchery competition between Team GB,Team Ireland and Team
Scotland in a Celtic ‘Tri-Nations’ Challenge for the first time ever
held in Ireland. Attendees and exhibitors will also be able to enjoy
a range of master classes, showcases and cookery demonstrations
throughout the two days of the show.
Local agri-food businesses will be invited to showcase their
products to leading retailers via live demonstrations and we will also
be running a NEW competition for food businesses called ‘Product
of the Show’. A prize of £1000 cash will be up for grabs.
Other show highlights will include a prize draw where visitors can
win a voucher worth £1500 to spend with Cutting Edge Services or
Versatile Packaging, sponsored by Meat 2 Trade.
