Bristol Organic Food Fair 2007

The Bristol Organic Food Festival

This last weekend I went with my family to visit an organic food fair in nearby Bristol. It was a great and tasty outing. here are some pictures highlighting some aspects of the day. Enjoy.

The Bristol Organic Food Festival [] was founded in 2000 by Sally Packer of Creativity Events. Given its immediate success and the fact that it takes place in their home town, The Soil Association quickly became involved and by 2002 had adopted it as their flagship event. Creativity Events now manage and deliver the festivals on behalf of the Soil Association.

The aim of the festival is to encourage the public to buy organic and provide a platform for businesses to showcase their products and produce. The festival also facilitates great networking opportunities for organic producers and takes a pro-active role in encouraging the attendance of trade buyers.

Bristol Harbourside is an apt location for the festival being both the historical heart of the city and the centre for much of its recent innovative development. Bristol is not only home to the Soil Association but commonly perceived as the UK's greenest city. The South West has long recorded the highest per capita organic sales in the UK making the region's capitol a very strong base for the festival.

The event has grown every year since its inception now attracting 40,000 visitors over the two days. They represent a good cross section of the city's population and an increasing proportion travel from all over the country and even abroad.
