The new MEATUP exhibition at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire has been a resounding success, as the £24 billion UK meat industry showcased and networked together, obtaining new business and fresh ideas.

Over 2,000 visitors were greeted by top names throughout the meat trade, in addition to specialist workshops and competitions. With a move to the NEC Birmingham, announced at the show, planned for July 2013, a number of exhibitors and sponsors have already confirmed their attendance in two years’ time.

Exhibitors already signed up for MEATUP 2013 include VC999, Autoflo Handwash Systems, Blythburgh Free Range Pork Products, Innovative Food Ingredients, Tasty Trotter and Shareteq.

Feedback from the exhibition floor was positive. Mary Irving of Creative Retail Solutions said: “The response from the visitors has been excellent, really warm and the butchers are a lovely crowd, and so easy to talk to.”

Likewise, Ian Mackway from RAPS UK was enthusiastic with how things had gone: “The show has been a tremendous success for RAPS and on the first day there was not one minute of the day when we weren’t entertaining customers on our stand and doing business. Our congratulations go to the organisers for a superb event.”

Visitor John Howard of the Danish Agriculture & Food Council was glad he made the trip to Stoneleigh: “The quality and organisation of this event is superb, and it is a tribute to the organisers that they are prepared to make a sizeable investment into the meat industry with this dedicated show. I have certainly enjoyed my visit and found it extremely worthwhile, including the pigmeat workshop.”

Day two of the MEATUP show followed a very successful networking barbecue on the previous evening, where prizes were given to the participants of the International Young Butchers Competition, which took place on the first day. Overall winner, Dutch contestant Sjouke Jan Bouma, was delighted with his win: “I feel outstanding that The Netherlands have won so much in the competition. It was very tough, but things went well. I’ve enjoyed every day of being here.” The Q Guild Meat Display Competition, which took place on the second day of the exhibition also created a great deal of interest. MEATUP will be moving to the NEC in 2013, taking place in Hall 11
on 2nd & 3rd July.
