Nothing But Summer
The team are back at Nothing But HQ after a busy weekend exhibiting at the Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival in Skipton. It’s not often we get to exhibit so close to home and it was great to be involved in a fantastic event that celebrated the good food and drink brands that Yorkshire has to offer.
With cooking demonstrations, 300 exhibitors, street food arenas and of course The Hairy Bikers & James Martin making an appearance there’s no wonder it was a sell-out event with 13,000 visitors across the two days.
All set up in our cattle pen at Skipton Auction Mart and with our very own celebrity ‘Strawbarry’ present as well, David & Laura welcomed visitors to Nothing But and our range of freeze dried snacks.
Overall it was a fantastic weekend and a pleasure to be able to offer consumers something a little different, super healthy and that doesn’t compromise on taste.
In fact, July has been a busy month for the Nothing But team as earlier in the month we braved the heat and London traffic to exhibit at the Allergy & Free From Show at Olympia. The annual event runs alongside Just V and Love Natural Love You and caters to consumers living with allergies and intolerances.
As seen at last year’s show it was again a reoccurring trend to see consumers looking for ‘clean’ products. We are always proud to strike up conversations with consumers and witness their excitable reactions when we explain, “Yes, freeze dried-fruit and veg snacks and all we do is remove the water and nothing is added”.
It was an action packed three days, full of tweeting, snap-chatting, meeting other free from brands, and generally sharing the love for Nothing But snacks amongst consumers that were excited to try ‘clean’ snacks. It was particularly encouraging to speak to so many visitors that had heard of, seen or tried Nothing But before, with Pea & Sweetcorn, Apple & Fig and Pineapple & Grape proving to be the most popular flavours at this particular show.
Through talking to customers about their particular allergies and intolerances it was great to be able to offer a snacking alternative with no added ingredients such as artificial colourings, sugars or preservatives, that deliver impressive health credentials and fantastic taste.
“I just wanted to say thank you. We found you at the FreeFrom show. My daughter suffers from Coeliac disease and struggles at times with snacks. You have opened a door for her. The pleasure that you have bought to her is fantastic. She loves the whole range. You didn't have the veggie ones at the show as you had run out, not surprised, so we ordered from amazon. Think it is important to say thank you.”
Two very different shows with one shared trend – a hunger for freeze dried snacks!
