LONDON – Two Caribbean products have been handpicked by a top professional chef to feature in cooking demonstrations at the next 2022 Specialties and Delicatessen Fair.

The Lime Mango Dip produced by CariBelle Foods of Trinidad and Tobago will be used in a live cooking session titled “Ethical Eating – guilt free and delicious” taking place on September 5. On September 6, Truly Turmeric Paste made by Belize-based Naledo will be part of a cooking demonstration and seminar on “The Healthy Eating Movement – An Unstoppable Trend.”

well respected British chef and consultant Steve Walpole chose Caribbean produce for its highly anticipated “Taste the Trends Kitchen” breakout sessions. This segment of the two-day show is intended to explore emerging trends in the food industry, particularly as they relate to sustainability, ethical production methods and healthy lifestyle choices.

Caribbean Foods and Drinks are increasingly in demand by health conscious consumers in the UK and Europe. Especially those looking for products that are as pure and natural as possible and still taste great.

Naledo’s Turmeric Paste is made from whole wild turmeric root, cold pressed coconut oil, fresh lime juice and sea salt. best-selling CariBelle combines fresh mango and lime with herbs, vegetables and spices.

CariBelle Foods Managing Director Hesma Tyson says she is “delighted” that her product has been chosen for a live chef demonstration at the fair. She believes the dip was chosen because it is “an all-natural product made with fresh fruits from Trinidad.” She adds, “This dip is the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and tangy, and pairs well with all meats and vegan dishes.”
