The pies have it - new suppliers found at Lunch!

Chefs Chris Rich-Bates and Simon Wilkes of Planters Garden Centres took part in the Cafe Life Challenges held at Lunch! last week.

Judged by a panel including celebrity chef Theo Randall, Chris and Simon weren't winners on this occasion but they were proud to be representing the UK garden centre catering sector at this prestigious event.

Meanwhile in the Lunch! trade show, GTN Xtra met the rest of the Planters team who were looking for ideas that they can include in their new double decker bus cafe which they are planning for their Garden King centre.  Pies will be one of the themes and there were a number of excellent pie suppliers giving out samples at the show.  Tasted pretty good to us, see our photo gallery below.

Elke and John Birch from Baytree Garden Centre found some new suppliers at Lunch! "The suppliers we found are more than willing to work with us on distribution so it was a good show to attend for a few hours," John told GTN Xtra, "I also came out stuffed due to all the free samples."

Our photo gallery below includes; pies, sweet and savoury biscotti, organic sugar free cola, alcholic Iced Tea (an ideal twist for afternoon teas), more pies, street food and a gluten free bakery supplier from Devon.
