The Society continues to support quality food and drink producers, and is stepping up its endeavours to source more local and regional suppliers using mainly British produce, for its catering at Shows and events.
The Three Counties Showground works closely with Brakes, a company which shares the Society’s own passion for supporting British produce, and is taking a leaf out of the Brakes’ book! Malvern has become the first showground in the country to be awarded a Red Tractor license, putting it ahead of the game. The Red Tractor scheme was launched in 2000 and is an independently inspected, nationally agreed standard, which unifies assurance schemes in all the major sections of food production.
Stockman’s Diner - Traditional roasts and all day breakfasts at reasonable prices. Now a Red Tractor licensed establishment.
Severn Valley Catering’s Food For Thought Café - A large choice ranging from scampi and chips to baguettes, burgers and salads.
They use British meat and Red Tractor milk, potatoes and onions when in season. Severn Valley is also working towards making one of its mobile units a ‘Red Tractor’ unit.
Relish - A range of hot and cold meals, salads and soups.
TCAS remains committed to promoting local producers, subsidizing trade stand space for exhibitors, using local firms to supply its catering contractors and providing a platform for highlighting local and British ingredients at its main shows. The long term aim is that visitors and exhibitors eating at the Showground will know that wherever possible, produce is sourced from the UK first.
