Silvery Tweed helps Berwick Food & Beer Festival put the North-East on the menu

Silvery Tweed helps Berwick Food & Beer Festival put the North-East on the menu

13 Sep 2016

It was a feast for the senses in Berwick Upon Tweed last weekend as the town celebrated its ninth annual Food & Beer Festival, with support and sponsorship provided once again by Silvery Tweed Cereals.

Taking place on September 3rd and 4th in the magnificent surroundings of Berwick’s eighteenth-century barracks, the festival stalls featured the finest street food, local produce and beers from over 50 producers and businesses based in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.

In addition to the array of food and drink on offer, the festival boasted cookery demonstrations, animal pens, food-themed film screenings and live music, as well as a ‘Meet the Brewers’ evening where attendees had the opportunity to talk to the producers behind some of the region’s finest ales.

Organised by Berwick’s Slow Food group, which encourages people to eat locally and sustainably wherever possible, the main aim of the festival has always been to showcase the region’s rich and diverse food and drink scene created by its unique position on the Scottish/English border. As one of the town’s longest-established and most prominent food businesses, Silvery Tweed is a shining example of a local business championing local ingredients: wherever possible the company sources its grains from within a 40-mile radius of Berwick, supporting local producers and highlighting the rich arable farming history and food heritage of the Border region.

Bob Gladstone, Silvery Tweed’s MD, was happy to share his thoughts on the Food Festival weekend: “It’s been a great privilege for Silvery Tweed to support the Berwick Food & Beer Festival for its ninth year. It’s always a fantastic weekend, with all kinds of delicious produce and local ales on offer, but above all we’re pleased to be involved because we’re such strong supporters of the festival’s values: showing support for our local food and drink producers, preserving regional traditions and recipes, and encouraging the whole family to enjoy food."

Joint Festival Director, Ruth McNeely, said: “This was our ninth annual festival and it continues to go from strength to strength. We are delighted with the strong links we have formed with local producers and with our regular supporters Silvery Tweed Cereals. This really was a weekend with something for everybody.”

Based in Berwick-upon-Tweed and family owned and managed since its foundation in 1843, Silvery Tweed Cereals is a processor of cereals and ingredients for breakfast cereal manufacturers, as well as bakeries and the wider food and drink industry across the UK. The company has always played an active role in the local community and has lent its support to the Berwick Food & Beer Festival for several years.
