Pioneer puts on a tasty show

We held our 20th food show on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 February 2017. This one was certainly the busiest to date with visitors arriving from all over Cumbria, south west Scotland and north east England.

With great deals on offer, fantastic food to sample and a buzzing atmosphere, this show was the success all our staff had worked hard to arrange and all we could have hoped for!

The butchery demonstrations by a master butcher proved to be a popular attraction as were the tastings of our dry aged beef. Just some of the delicious products on offer included our own Lakeland beef, lamb and pork, desserts from Sweet Street Desserts, ice cream from Cream o' Galloway and gluten free dishes from Paramount 21.

With visitors praising the show for demonstrating a wide range of quality products and all at fantastic prices, we’re sure they’ll be back for another visit in two years’ time.

A warm welcome to Lake District Hotels

On Wednesday 18th January, we warmly welcomed a group of visitors from the Lake District Hotels to our head offices. The group was given a guided tour of our warehouses and butchery factory where a butchery demonstration of innovative new cuts of meat was given and then the visitors got hands on in sausage making!

The group included chefs and hotel managers from the chain of award-winning hotels from around the county and the visit was arranged by Daniella Hope, their Marketing Director. The purpose of the visit was to gain an insight into how we work, our ethics and our quality product offering and services.

After the factory visit, they were given a demonstration from Bruce and Luke’s coffee and were shown how to perfect the art of coffee making. They also got the opportunity to sample just some of the fantastic produce that we have to offer, including Frankliins soft drinks, Claire’s Handmande preserves and our own brand Chefs’ Selections by Caterforce cake.

Feedback from the visit was positive and we thoroughly enjoyed welcoming everyone!
