It’s always exciting to be part of something new and working with the new products coming to the market. The Kitchen Table Project is a brand new opportunity for both producers and consumers.
The doors opened on 22nd of June in Old Street tube station. Offering Londoners the opportunity to enjoy its coffee shop and range of artisan products and meet many of its 11 artisan spring board producers. In the first week they have had over 2,300 consumers come and try them out and leave with bags of tasty treats.
The pop up offers a great place to meet for lunch or a coffee and cake.
The Artisan Springboard participants have signed up to a 12 week programme of advice, guidance, and a listing in the pop up. The pop up has a wall of tablets for consumers to be able to leave their feedback on the products, giving the producer valuable feedback.
The programme kicked off with a daylong workshop with Tussie from Hurricanechatting through why branding is so important and that it is a journey not a revolution. Clare Downes from Monkhouse Food and Drink shared her advice on the importance of communication and the value of PR, and our very own Vhari Russell sharing her thoughts on sales, marketing and how to get listed and why social media is not to be ignored.
The workshop gave the 11 producers a great opportunity to pick the panels brains and expertise, to help them grow.
The producers will then go on to have guidance and advice on Finance, Marketing, Sales and many more useful topics with a host of different experts.
The application for the Autumn springboard will be opening shortly so watch this space. If you want to get involved in this great project get in touch with Tara.
