On Thursday it was tradeshow day at The London Produce Show and stand holders as well as visitors were enthusiastic about the event. This year saw a record number of attendees at the event. Typically the morning was busier than the afternoon, but the flow of visitors remained pretty steady all day. There were seminars and chef’s demonstrations running throughout the day.

Following the first Global Grape Summit on Wednesday international grape growers were well represented. There were many new faces this year as well as people who have been there since the first London Produce Show six years ago.
