Looks like Knutsford, Shrewsbury and The Lowry Makers Market loves our Biltong! Looks like we are top of the shop again !
First of all a massive thank you to Braaibery & Querruption for the full on meat plater at Shrewsbury Food Festival on Sunday it went down a treat and it was beautiful hope you got the scores you deserve plus hoping the Monkey Gland Sauce went down as well !
So this week saw us at Royal Cheshire County Show Tuesday and Wednesday and then Shrewsbury Food Festival and The Lowry Outlet Makers Market both Saturday and Sunday. The Royal Cheshire County Show is a great place for us to spread the world of #Biltong #Droewors and our now very famous #Chillibites right in the heart of the beautiful British Countryside in #Cheshire the home of “The Weston Biltong Company” again both days weather was fantastic for us again, a very different event this year as we had a lot of regulars from the surrendering areas come and visit us and finding lots of new customer as well so a truly brilliant two days for us. We also had a spot inspection from the local EHO on Wednesday at the Show and to say they were impressed was an understatement everything from our Waste disposal system on site, our labelling and most of all the way which we display all the allergens in all our products so it’s an easy read for everyone so again no issues for us at our events. Apparently the allergens is the one that a lot of venders don’t great right and can have serious consequences once again Mrs #Biltong ahead of the curve.
Saturday saw us needing to call in “The Beast” (6ft 1inches and still going) aka JK our eldest Mrs #Biltong had managed to injury herself on Friday night playing Parents and Kids Cricket Weston Cricket Club - Cheshire cour local village club (where you can also grab hold of a bag or two of our stunning #Biltong) so back up was needed on Saturday at the Lowry Outlet Makers Market and WOW what a great job he did making it one of the best The Lowry Outlet Makers Market we have ever seen so maybe we need to send him again next month! When it comes to looking after his Mum he’s always ready no matter what so a huge thanks from Mr #Biltong on that buddy!
It was our first time at Shrewsbury Food Festival and what a stunner it was, again we saw a massive amount of our regular customers from the area which is great when people come looking just for what we do really makes a difference so a massive thank you to all of you ! (Already booked in again for this one !!) The massive screen they had up for the England game was a real hit as well made a real full day at the vent without having to leave truly spectacular.
This weekend see us at Bodelwyddan Castle & Park with the Great British Food Festival team again this a new event on the calendar for us and the first time the team has held an event here the weather looks great so expecting some massive crowds ! That combined with the Great Northern Makers Market in Manchester we better make sure our stock levels are up to the job !!
Oh also we had our annual Inspection this Friday with our Local Environmental Health Officer and well and yes you guessed it Mrs #Biltong was once again prised for whole running of the operation from top to bottom and again were credited with the highest mark possible a full 5 so well done hun x. Some people refer to a 5* (Star) rating with these accreditation as the EHO Officer said “You’re not a Hotel in Benidorm so its simple 5 score nothing more nothing less” stickler for detail they are LOL. This combined with the great feedback we had at the Royal Cheshire Show has made it a cracking week again ! The support they have offered as we covered what we have done to expand and future plans have also been given the green light. So be under no illusion we are growing at rate far bigger than we ever imagined when we started this adventure not too long ago and once again it’s a massive thank you to all our customers, family friends and anyone that’s on this stunning adventure we are all on !
And i think i may of found a new addition to the team a Land Rover to carry all that #Biltong !!
