Welsh food and drink enjoys a reputation for quality and excellence around the world. Now, for the first time, TasteWales brings together the finest exponents of the industry, from micro artisan businesses to larger food manufacturing companies, with influential UK and international buyers in the largest food and drink trade event and conference in Wales.

Wales is a beautiful country, and the range of our products reflects this natural environment, rich culture, and the warmth of our hospitality. Welsh food and drink is treasured, celebrated and promoted around the world, and now TasteWales gives us this opportunity to invite the industry to come to Wales to experience and savour just what we have to offer, from speciality items for niche markets to high volume items for major distribution networks.

Whether you’re a producer, buyer or industry professional, you will receive a warm ‘Croeso’/Welcome to the luxury Celtic Manor Resort, home of the Ryder Cup 2010 for what will be an enlightening, informative and entertaining event that will prove beneficial for your business.

The Welsh food and drink sector has exceeded growth targets in recent years, and is on course to meet the Welsh Government’s ambitious target to grow by 30% by 2020 set out in Towards Sustainable Growth: An Action Plan for the Food & Drink Industry 2014 – 2020. As part of the drive to increase trade, Welsh food and drink companies are already flying the flag in international export markets, with the backing of Welsh Government at industry events around the world.
