fare healthy

Fare Healthy is a fantastic gathering of all things healthy and happy. From the 4th until the 5th of February, The Old Truman Brewery was full of enthusiastic visitors ready to ‘EAT, MOVE and THINK’. 

We were very excited to have a stand at this event to show off the best fruit innovations for 2017! We were showcasing special and different flavours, including banana sushi and Flavorking plums. We were also surrounded by lots of other fantastic exhibitors, who were sampling and promoting their health and wellbeing products.

Flavorking plums are a hybrid of an apricot and a red plum. They have a very sweet ‘bubblegum’ taste and are really growing in popularity, as more people are beginning to find out about them. All visitors loved the quirky and delicious taste of Flavorking plums and picked up a coupon to receive 50p off a packet of Flavorking plums in Marks & Spencer.

Bananas are a great everyday fruit which is perfect for that much-needed energy boost. However, sometimes bananas can be overlooked. Well, not anymore! The latest fruit craze this year is banana sushi! This is a fun, fruity and nutritional twist on traditional sushi. It is so easy to make too. The visitors at Fare Healthy loved watching banana sushi being made and thought the combination of peanut butter and banana was brilliant. We topped the bananas with desiccated coconut and puffed rice.

We ran a competition over the weekend for the chance to win a yoga bundle. It was very easy to enter and we gained lots of interaction from this. Also, people were desperate to get their hands on the Flavorking plums so we decided to get visitors to take a photograph or video on our stand with the plums and post it on social media for the chance to win a bag of Flavorking plums. We had people creating some fantastic yoga poses to get their hands on the fruit. One lady even stood on her head!

We enjoyed sampling such wonderful fruit once more and letting visitors know what makes M&S fruit so special and different.

Thank you, Fare Healthy for having us and we look forward to attending more shows in 2017!
