Producer Tastings:

While this is not a formal producer showcase, a number of the Tesco buyers   have expressed a willingness to look at product samples.  If you intend to taste product, you must use a branded tasting stand and book a slot barbara@jamesburke.ie (max 8 tasting slots).  This is simply a meet and greet opportunity with no guarantees of a listing.
