      June 2024

It's officially summertime. That means more picnics and eating outside. More fizz and cocktails guzzled into the evenings in the garden and, hopefully, more footfall into speciality retailers, as consumers look to furnish their occasions with the creme de la creme of artisan food and drink. In our June edition we have plenty to inspire your stocking decisions across the season, including guidance from cheesemongers about the cheeses that hit the mark at this time of year with their customers, and a deep-dive into the crunchy world of biscuits and crackers. We're also incredibly proud to have joined forces with Speciality & Fine Food Fair to bring you Rising Stars. We have dedicated six pages to 25 of the most innovative, inspiring leaders in the fine food and drink world. Join us at the event in London this September to mark their achievement.

  • The latest trends in pasta, rice and sauces
  • Innovation in packaging and labelling

Drinks Buyer 2024

When the sun is high, the drinks come out! Since lockdown, when many people invested in a cocktail cabinet, wine racks, or even home bars, sales of wines, spirits and beer have sky rocketed. Couple this with emerging trends - from functional and gut friendly, to HFSS compliant - and it's clear to see the industry has been utterly transformed in the last few years. The past 12 months, especially, have informed a tide change. At trade shows we're seeing more British rums, low or no-sugar soft drinks, living sodas, and RTD cocktails. These, and more, are highlighted in our handy Drinks Buyer magazine - your definitive guide to what's moving and what's shaking across multiple categories this year. The list is filled with spotlights and profiles, introducing you to emerging and popular brands, too.
