Golden opportunity for Tipperary’s food producers to showcase at Bite 2016, Ireland’s artisan food festival

Tipperary’s talented food and drink producers are being offered the chance to showcase their skills at a national level, thanks to Ireland’s artisan food festival, Bite 2016.

And they have a chance to win a free stand at the second annual festival if they manage to impress the organisers with a brief description of their services.

Festival organisers are on a nationwide hunt for talented food and beverage producers for the event, which will be held in Dublin’s RDS from November 18-20.

It will be a chance to exhibit your product to the 20,000 Irish food and drink lovers who are expected to descend on the festival in the run-up to the Christmas season.

“Bite 2016 promotes Ireland’s vastly expanding artisan food and craft drinks sector, letting people with an interest in food experience just how much quality that we have in the field to the plate industry,” said festival organiser Patrick O’Sullivan.

“Many of the artisans who will take part in the festival go on to achieve success nationally, and in some cases internationally.

“Now we want to offer talented people, who maybe unknown outside of their locality, the chance to bring their expertise, ideas and experiences to a wider audience.”

Bite 2016 will feature top chefs and food experts as well as a huge range of producers, who are there to sell, sample and educate people about their unique products.

This year’s Festival will also feature a range of winners from the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards, the biggest competition for quality Irish produce.

Presented by the organisers of the National Crafts and Design Fair, Bite 2016 is Ireland’s first and foremost interactive food expo, with attractions for all the family.

“Every stand at Bite 2016 features quality products with unique stories behind them – encapsulating a rapidly growing industry,” said Patrick.

Artisans in Tipperary who would like to win a free stand at the Bite 2016 festival in November are asked to write a brief 150-word description of their practice and why they deserve to be chosen.

Entries, including full name and contact details and the name of this publication can be sent to info@bitefoodfestival.ie. The closing date for the competition is Friday October 28.

Bite 2016 takes place at the RDS Main Hall from November 18-20. Full details and booking can be found at www.bitefoodfestival.ie.
