The food and drink event held at the award-winning Stanley House Hotel & Spa located in Mellor, Lancashire, was the 4th annual event organised by NatWest. This sector-specific exhibition welcomed businesses from across the county, from catering, packaging, cleaning, insurance, beverage, food and more.
The Essentials Traceability System got lots of attention from attendees and exhibitors and Paul Dungworth, Area Sales Manager for the North, demonstrated how the system uses the stock management module and production module so that operators weigh ingredients accurately to ensure product consistency and capture ingredient lot numbers for traceability purposes.
“Traceability is a legal requirement for food businesses, which should be established at all stages of production, processing and distribution. It is essential in situations where a product withdrawal or recall is required.” (Food Standards Agency)
With over 35 exhibitors and 150 attendees, the event had an energetic atmosphere, new connections were made, and Paul and Amanda (pictured above) even discovered (and sampled) orange jalfrezi chocolate made by a local chocolatier!
