A right royal event in Monaco

A right royal event in Monaco

We took our first trip to the glamorous principality of Monaco for the first time last November. Unfortunately, there was no time to soak up some sun by the famous Piscine and watch the mega-yachts cruise into the harbour, as it was all hands on deck to make sure things went swimmingly at the Chefs’ World Summit 2018.

Experts discussed many of the most important issues facing the gastronomic world. There was a series of round table discussions focusing on locally sourced produce, the environment, the ethics of eating meat, relationships between producers and chefs, future trends and much more.

Pretium bring a bit of California to Food Matters Live ’17

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Pretium UK. For the past few days we’ve been with our friends from the California Prune Board (www.californiaprunes.co.uk) at Food Matters Live which took place at ExCel London. It’s a great show, which brings together retailers, food service providers, and other representatives of the food and drink industry, to talk about nutrition, ingredients, and other issues facing the industry right now. California prunes chef ambassador Peter Sidwell(www.simplygoodfood.tv) cooked up a storm in the demo area, with some fabulous recipes made all the more delectable and healthy with the addition of California prunes. What’s more, we met loads of people from all over the industry – and the globe – who really have got some wonderful, healthy products.   ……. update …… So, we’ve hardly had time to draw breath, though. After finishing up in London, we’re now packing for our trip to Israfood in Tel Aviv next week, where again we’ll be supporting California Prunes. But we’re not complaining! It’s a really exciting time to be in this great business, and we’re looking forward to making more new friends in Israel. Check out our next blog for...
