GIMA Knowledge Exchange Workshop

Forming part of an extensive programme of GIMA Knowledge Exchange Workshops will be a special one-day session entitled ‘Presentation Skills’, focusing on how presentations can become an enjoyable experience, not one filled with nerves and discomfort. With places filling up fast interested parties are urged to book their place now to avoid missing out.  
Open to both GIMA members and non-members, the ‘Presentation Skills’ workshop will focus on the different ways to make presenting a more enjoyable and less nerve-wracking experience — whether it’s a one-person pitch, showing slides in a meeting or giving a talk to hundreds of delegates at a conference.

From bean-to-bar chocolate

Speciality Food's second annual New Producer awards saw hundreds of exciting entries from start-ups across the food industry, with eight ultimately reigning as category champions
Run by 25-year-old Max Scotford, Bullion Chocolate makes its mission to show the UK a different side of chocolate. With a range of three chocolate bars, each from its own origin, the company showcases the value of the single origin chocolate bean, and the potential for varied flavour profiles. Its No 1 bar sources its beans from Haiti and operates with notes of caramel, fig, and raison. The No 2 bar brings in rare heirloom cacao from Bolivia to create a chocolate with notes of brownie and honey. Its No 3 bar sources beans from Guatemala to produce a chocolate that is fruity, with hints of peach and jam that make it the perfect pair for a cheese and wine board. Hand-made and hand-roasted, Bullion Chocolate chocolate bars not only taste unique, but look great on shelves, with crisp gold packaging. According to Scotford, the company originated from a passion for chocolate that grew into a desire to bring chocolate and cocoa beans back into the world of luxury. In its category, Bullion Chocolate not only is run by a young producer but is itself a young company of only two years working on a concept that is new to the UK. It was the entrepreneurial spirit of the company combined with the high quality of the chocolate that ended up winning the overall Supreme Champion prize for Scotford.
