Birchall Foodservice to host Callebaut chocolate roadshow

Burnley-based food wholesaler and Country Range member Birchall Foodservice has been chosen as a stop for the upcoming Callebaut chocolate roadshow.

The roadshow, which will be touring Europe in 2022, aims to bring inspirational recipe demos and product sampling to chefs and artisans across the continent. The converted demo truck is fitted with a state-of-the-art kitchen and demonstration lounge, and will be visiting the UK in the spring and summer. 

With customers from a broad range of sectors, including hospitality, care and education, Birchalls will be inviting up to 50 chefs to attend 2 sessions on Wednesday 11th May.

Martin Blades, UK national account manager for Callebaut said, “Birchalls have a fantastic depot and a great mix of customers, so it made sense to choose them as one of the stops for the roadshow. We’re looking forward to bringing the truck to the north west and meeting some of the fantastic caterers they work with.”

Between sessions, attendees will be able to enjoy lunch in the wholesaler’s training, exhibitions and development (TED) centre with Birchall employees and other foodservice suppliers.

Joe Moulton, marketing manager at Birchalls said, “We’re really excited about hosting the Callebaut roadshow. We put on a lot of customer events at our depot every year, but the roadshow offers something completely different to anything we’ve done before. We can’t wait to see the artic roll up in our car park. It’ll be like seeing the Coca Cola truck at Christmas.”

Registration for the roadshow is now open. Caterers can register by speaking to their business development manager.
