This group was formed in April 2015. It is open to anyone in the 9 counties of Ulster and it is for any artisan food and drink producer who follows the EU food name guidelines.
Currently there are 84 members including Harnett’s Oils, Passion Preserved, Flossie’s Fudge, City Cheese, Cavanagh Eggs, Made with Love, Lough Neagh Eels, Armagh Cider Company, Ruby Blue, Shortcross Gin, Pollock’s Pickles and Hillstown Brewery.
They had a very successful three month stint as a pop-up in Departures in Belfast International Airport with a number of the producers going on to be stocked in Duty Free. Over Christmas week they were also in Arrivals to welcome people home at another pop-up. They’re looking forward to another airport pop-up in the coming year.
Their main aim to help other producers with the manufacturing, packaging and selling of products. The group is by producers, for producers. There is a private Facebook page for advice and mentoring and they meet every two months.
