Isle of Ely Open day 2020 event decision

Isle of Ely Industry Open Day 2020

Cancelled – we will be back next year!

Isle of Ely Produce and Chippy Chat are not able to open their doors to chip shop owners and managers in 2020, to show you why you should be asking for Isle of Ely Produce marketed potatoes!

Last year the day was invaluable not only did chip shop owners and staff see first-hand the journey a potato makes (from seed through to field & farm) before it reaches their shops, but they also found out first hand of what the 2019/20 potato crop was faring, giving them heads up on both expected cost and quality of the crop.

This year we had planned to let you know how the 2020 crop looks and also of how we are looking to new varieties which can grow in ever changing environments

It is a day for fryers to get together in an unique environment and exchange tips, try new products and also listen first hand to presentations across the day from industry experts.

In 2019 we had over 140 friers and suppliers join us for one of the best industry days out of the year and 2020 we already had have lots of owners and friers registered to attend.

The event was to be be held on Sunday 5th September in Ely, Cambridgeshire and lots of chip shop owners and managers had already signed up.

It is an important day for suppliers too, as much of the day is spent exchanging ideas from across the industry, and attendees are given key time to talk to sponsors/exhibitors on the day.

In fact we are already offering suppliers a great rate to attend in 2021 to come and show friers what they do. With prices from just £249, (to help us pay for the day) why not come and display your products. If you need a bigger space please call/email us and we will tailor the package to your needs.

We had a great line up of speakers pencilled in (hopefully these will all now carry over until 2021).

Sponsors and suppliers for the day in 2019 included McWhinney Sausages, Keejays, Middleton Foods, Kerry Food Service, Drywite, Pukka Pies, Seafood from Norway, HOLL Oil, Frymax, Friars Pride, Wrapped Insurance, KFE, T Quality, VITO P J Lee & Sons, Seafish and more.

Please contact me if you would like to sponsor speak and/or exhibit in 2021?   

Also, included in the day will be an educational visit to a potato farm in Cambridgeshire.  Isle of Ely Produce sell potatoes through merchants across the UK. Make sure you ask your supplier what potatoes he has that have come via Isle of Ely Produce.
