LOCAL food producers will be delivering a programme of talks to visitors to the Weston super Food Festival.

Meet The Producers will give visitors a unique chance to meet the people behind the food and learn first-hand the entertaining and fascinating stories behind the purchases they have made during the Mercury-supported festival.

Festival organiser Sally Packer said: “It is only when you hear producers like these talk with enthusiasm and passion that you realise how much care and thought they put into their products.

“It’s all about taste, care, quality and integrity – all the things that are sadly missing in everyday mass-produced food.”

Antonio Paladino is one of those who will be talking about his experiences of starting his pioneering BioAquaFarm on the outskirts of Wedmore.

It is one of the first farms of its kind in the UK, with revolutionary sustainable farming methods, and designed to have minimum impact on the environment.

He said: “In our farm, the fish production is essential for the plant production and it’s all a balancing process.

“At the festival I will be showing people how sustainable farming can be achieved with zero waste.”

Andy, a producer of award winning rape seed oil, will be talking about how his company Fussells Fine Foods endeavours to have full control over every part of the farming process to ensure it delivers high quality products.

And Timea from Panna Creative And Richomix will explain how she made the life-changing transition from midwife to creator of beautiful chocolate bars.

Festival visitors can also learn about the herbs and spices from the creators of Rossinis Rubs And Marinades about how their business evolved from their experiences as chefs in France.

Festival organiser Sally Packer is looking for more volunteers to help during the festival on September 21-22 and if you would like to be involved, email Sally at sally@westonsuperfoodfestival.co.uk
