Tastes of Anglia
Tastes of Anglia Ltd is a support and promotion organisation for the food and drink sector formed over 20 years ago using Government funding. In the formative years the organisation flourished, creating opportunities for regional food and drink producers to expand their businesses and broaden their market place. When Govt funding ended the organisation unfortunately lost its way.
What we do:
In 2014, this membership owned, not for profit cooperative was placed under new management to take the organisation back to its original purpose. Subscription funded, in the last year producer members have been assisted with:
Introductions to retailers & distributors
Introductions to export opportunities
Introductions to branding, packaging & PR specialists
Introductions to a range of media outlets to raise brand awareness and business profile
Sourcing new production locations to aid business expansion
Sourcing grant funding to grow their business
Discounted exhibitor stand rates for regional & national trade & consumer shows
Grant supported business courses (when funding is available)
The sale of surplus equipment & in one case, a complete business
Answers & potential solutions to the many questions & issues that arise in running a growing business
At the core of our marketing activity is the www.tastesofanglia.org.uk website. A site that is receiving tens of thousands of page views per month. Every member has one full page on the site and we are increasingly being told that the exposure received via the ToA site and supporting social media activity is worth the membership subscription alone.
‘Food Tourism in the East of England’
In March 2015 we launched our ‘Food Tourism in the East of England’ initiative creating a central reference point for foodie families to visit & engage in regional food related activities during their stay in the area. In short, we are creating a reference point for all that is good in food and drink in the East of England.
On average the food tourism link above is viewed by well over 1000 people per month. On average, each visitor to the ToA website then goes on to view a further 8-10 pages.
