The Food Show is on-trend – and on its way

The Food Show is on-trend – and on its way
The Food Show Auckland – Thursday 31 July to Sunday 3 August 2014 at ASB Showgrounds

It’s not just New Zealand’s largest culinary exhibition where you can try and buy from a huge range of the very best food, drink, and kitchen equipment – it’s also where you can stay ahead of the curve with the latest food trends.

Dazzle your friends and relatives with unprecedented levels of food hipness by checking out these on-trend stands at this year’s Food Show Auckland.

1. Eat like a caveperson
Visit CleanPaleo for preservative-free Paleo products, Pure Delish for all-natural cereals, Canterbury Biltong for finely cured beef, The Honest Food Co for hand-crafted, raw, high-protein foods, Stevianna for natural, non-sugar sweeteners, and sample dairy and gluten-free treats from El Paleo Chocolates.

2. Bring Back Fat
It turns out fats are our friends and a moderate amount of fat in our diets can actually be good for us. Yay! So give yourself permission to visit Lewis Road Creamery for some of the best cream and butter in the world, check out Nude Coconut or Heilala for organic coconut oil, and sample handcrafted olive oils at the Virtuo stand.

3. Make food fun
How much fun can you and your kids have with food? How about eating utensils shaped like tiny diggers, forklifts, and bulldozers from Squoodles? Or 100% natural tea balls from Flora Tea that bloom into a beautiful floral display when you add boiling water? Thinking about theming a party? Go crazy at Pixie Party Supplies. And VitalZing bottled drinks put the fun into health with vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes sealed in their caps – just blast the cap down, shake, and drink to unleash the goodness. Amazing!

4. Go retro
Turn back the clock with Sarah’s Cornish Pasties, Wise Cicada stoneware pots, 100% natural Proper Hand Cooked Crisps, old fashioned sweets from Liquorice Delights, and additive-free Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter.

5. Free your body
Sometimes it’s what’s NOT in our food that makes it so good for us. Like gluten-free cereal from Te Atatu Toasted, additive-free misomite from Urban Hippie, dairy-free ice cream makers from Yonanas, and chemical-free raw fruit and vegetable juices from Pure Health Delivered.
