"Well Done Lively Crew and TEAM! This is the first time I have worked with you and I hope it is NOT the last. ! You are industrious, meticulous and effective. I congratulate you on being able to keep cool when some of us fail to see through the mist! I consider the Flavours 2013 event to have been a total success. A Sincere Thank You from me."
Honingham Thorpe Farms
In September 2013, The Lively Crew launched Local Favours. The event saw over 50 local food and drink producers come together to showcase the quality of local produce in the area.
The event took place at Honingham Thorpe Farms the site of the proposed Norfolk Food Hub. The quality and diversity of food and drink on display and for tasting included some very individual tastes from established producers as well as some in the early stages of their business venture.
The 400 attendees included large national and international caterers and retailers as well as some of the small individual shops and deli’s found locally. Whether the exhibitor was looking for national distribution or to supply someone closer to home there was potential in the marquee for everyone.
We created the idea from a conversation held with a national retailer looking to source local produce. We worked with sponsors and associates that are as passionate as us about supporting local business.
"First let's start by saying a big thank you to you and the Lively Crew for organising a very smooth running event! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am hopeful that we will be supplying a #Local #Ethical supermarket chain as a result!"
