NPD Direct chefs participated at the Fruit Logistica trade exhibition in Berlin, Germany – Europe’s largest fresh produce exhibition (more than 60,000 visitors from 130 countries meeting over 2600 exhibitors from around the world).
Working with Gourmet Garden herbs and spices the chefs joined Gourmet Garden’s new distributor for Holland and Germany – Nature’s Pride – on their large, end of aisle stand in one of the prime positions of the show.
Using the event as the ‘launch’ of Gourmet Garden products to Nature’s Pride’s existing and potential new customers, the two chefs demonstrated both Gourmet Garden’s herbs and spices and Nature’s Pride’s wide range of exotic vegetables and fruits. The chefs, Chris and Marcus, ensured that everyone got off to a healthy start with fruit smoothies that contained a hidden ‘kick’ of either Gourmet Garden Ginger or Lemongrass; lunches over the three day event consisted of a range of stir fries that mixed Nature’s Pride’s exotic vegetables (including edible flowers as garnishes!) with a variety of Gourmet Garden herbs and spices; during the afternoon Chris and Marcus made fresh dips flavoured with Gourmet Garden products and served with raw vegetable crudités.
