The organisers of the Liverpool Food and Drink Festival have announced that there will be a brand new healthy eating concept area introduced at this year’s event, which is being held in Sefton Park on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September.
The festival which last year drew over 45,000 food lovers from around the city region will be divided into a number of zones, with areas of the site dedicated to diverse and exciting food genres such as craft beer and bangers, a spirit ‘theatre’ which highlights different gins, bourbon and vodka brands, plus a producers market and restaurant zone that showcases the city’s top eateries.
The new ‘Good Life’ area will focus on healthy eating, and already numerous producers and brands have signed up to get involved, including food box company Hello Fresh, street food operator The Green Canteen, The Vegan Diner and organic food producer. Seeds of Change who will be sampling and speaking to festival visitors from their eye catching bright orange hut in the zone, which also features beds of live plants and fragrant potted herbs.
In addition to the many new exhibitors, celebrity nutritional health coach and best selling cookery writer, Madeleine Shaw will be hosting demonstrations and talks in the Good Life theatre on festival Saturday.
Madeleine will be speaking about the health giving benefits of different food types and how she first got her interest in food during teenage years, whilst suffering from digestive problems resulting from a poor diet. She turned around her own health after working in an organic cafe and now helps others with their diets.
Festival Director of Liverpool Food and Drink Festival, Denise Harris commented:
“The Good Life area is yet another new attraction we’re bringing to this year’s festival. There’s so much in the media at the moment about eating clean and we’re seeing a real consumer shift for example towards superfoods and raw diets, that we wanted to bring together some of the country’s best organic, vegetarian and vegan producers in one place – supported by Madeleine’s personal insights. We’re anticipating that the Good Life will be a popular area of the festival and one that we’ll see grow considerably over the next few years.”
