We have been running food festivals and events since 2008, when we launched the first Real Food Festival at Earls Court Exhibition centre, and have since gone on to launch several annual food festivals, regular markets, pop-ups, and dedicated street food festivals in central London, Bristol and internationally championing and celebrating the very best food food producers and businesses out there.
We have staged food events at Southbank Centre, along the river Thames, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, closed the whole of Regent Street to traffic and shipped out the UK’s finest street food traders (and their trucks!) to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, to the feet of the tallest building in the world.
We are driven by a belief that people share our conviction in real food enough to seek out independent, artisan producers who put the quality and integrity of their product above all else, and our festivals, events and markets celebrate the pleasure of food while helping to support small producers and independent food businesses creating sustainable and ethical products.
These food producers and businesses are crucial in preserving our natural environment, local economies, agricultural knowledge and food culture. We believe it is vitally important to support their existence and reconnect people to where their food comes from. We don’t believe that food should be treated as a basic commodity and in an effort to bring great food to as many people as possible we have collaborated with some fantastic partners and like-minded organizations.
