Flogas is to be the Official Energy Supplier for IFEX, Northern Ireland’s premier food, drink and hospitality event which returns to the TEC, Belfast from March 24 to 26 this year.
Also this year, IFEX celebrates its 25th anniversary and with upwards of 7,000 visitors expected to attend, Flogas is looking forward to ‘energising’ one of the most eagerly anticipated foodservice events of the year.
Commenting on the news, Paul Ruegg, senior marketing executive, at Flogas said, ‘Salon Culinaire and Chefskills are always the most exciting and entertaining sections of IFEX. As the Official Energy Supplier, we’re delighted to be providing gas for the many professional and student chefs who will be showcasing their talents at the event.”
As the stomping ground for student and industry chefs, Salon Culinaire is hotly anticipated as the place where the best culinarians in Northern Ireland are formally acknowledged. Aiming to raise the bar in culinary skills, across the three days of the show, over 250 professional and student chefs will compete in more than 30 category competitions.
Vying for the title of Chef of the Year, six Northern Ireland chefs will be battling it out for the accolade that’s previously been held by Michael Deane, Chris Bell, Roisin Gavin and Paul Cunningham. In addition, some of Northern Ireland’s most respected catering colleges will go head to head in Street Food International.
Caroline McCusker, IFEX event manager, says, ‘IFEX has retained its place as the biggest, most comprehensive tradeshow for the foodservice and hospitality sector and we’re extremely proud to deliver an industry event that puts skills at the heart of the show.’
