Pioneer Foodservice event announced for North England and Scotland

Leading family food company, Pioneer Foodservice, has announced details of its next catering trade show, which will take place in Carlisle, for those working in catering and hospitality in the north of England and south of Scotland.

The show, which takes place on Sunday 24th and Monday 25th February, will see over 60 regional and national suppliers showcasing their product ranges.

With well-known brand names such as Whitby Scampi, Heinz and Nestlé in attendance, the Carlisle-based company is proud to be a supplier of established household names. Long-established products will mix alongside some new product innovation as Pioneer is always keen to be at the forefront of trends to ensure customers are always ahead of the game. From vegan and gluten free foods to food packaging made from plants, there will be a wide range of innovation showcased.

Manager Director of Pioneer Foodservice, Graham Jenkins says: “This is our 21st show and we’re immensely excited about this year’s event – we think it’s going to be the best so far. With a wide choice of quality products from national and regional suppliers on show, visitors will be treated to an event where we come together to celebrate our passion for food.”

Last year over 1,300 visitors attended, and Pioneer is expecting an even bigger turn out this year. Held at The Shepherds, Rosehill in Carlisle, the show is open to those working in the catering and hospitality trade.

Pioneer recently picked up regional and national Family Business Awards, acknowledging its ongoing support and promotion of local entrepreneurs and business owners. Many products which are produced in the north of England will be on show and suppliers will not only be enticing customers with their delicious products but offering substantial discounts for orders taken at the show.

Graham says: “We invite all caterers to come along to the event as big savings can be made on the day. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet our suppliers and get to know their product ranges.

“As well as sampling the range of grocery, chilled and frozen goods at the show, visitors will be able to try our own Lakeland beef and a variety of sausages, including our famous Cumberland sausage of course!”


The show is open from 1pm to 5.30pm on Sunday 24th February and 10.00am to 5.00pm on Monday 25th February. The full show guide with all relevant information is available on the Pioneer website at
