We're very proud to live and work in such a beautiful part of the world and in Autumn it's an extra special place. North Devon is home to some fantastic food and drink producers and at this time of year many have harvested the crop to produce some outstanding products.
Some of the companies that we supply with packaging will be at the North Devon Foodfest on Sunday October 21 in Barnstaple's historic Pannier Market. It's a real celebration of the local area with hearty vegetables, colourful cakes and award winning ales and ciders.
Riverford Organic Farmers will be at the Foodfest with Atlas made veg boxes
We supply them with cardboard packaging that is designed specifically for the food and drink industry such as Shelf Ready Packaging or reusable veg boxes. Atlas Packaging has been supporting the Plastic Free North Devon movement this year and the organisers of the North Devon Foodfest have encouraged exhibitors to use less plastic on the day and seek out more environmentally friendly alternatives, a fact welcomed by our Sales Director Mark Leverton:
"North Devon Foodfest asked us at Atlas Packaging if we could supply all exhibitors at the event with information about our plastic alternative packaging. We were delighted to do so as there are plenty of opportunities to replace plastic with cardboard in the food and drink industry."
There will also be live cookery at the event with Michelin star chefs from North Devon entertaining the crowds with some tasty dishes.
