Our food division team were delighted to exhibit the Carbon Group dairy portfolio at the ICDA (International Cheese & Dairy Awards) held at the Staffordshire County Showgrounds on Thursday, 21st October 2021. With a very impressive new venue, the event was hugely successful and will certainly continue to be a regular in the Carbon calendar.

Carbon Group Business Development Executive, John Lynch, who was part of the team representing Carbon Group at the ICDA offered this report from the event:

“It’s great to be back in the UK attending the ICDA after a break due to COVID-19 in 2020. This is the company’s first trade show since restrictions have been lifted and permitted such events to take place. We have great memories from the show in Nantwich over the years, and we look forward to many more at its new home in the Staffordshire County Showgrounds. The ICDA Show is an important event in the calendar for Carbon Group, and it gives our Food Ingredients Division the opportunity to meet both new and familiar faces, along with the chance to network with other key figures in the industry. With the launch of our new UK Dairy Portfolio, we felt it was important to attend and increase the brand awareness of our new producers”.

He adds:

“We attended the Society of Dairy Technologies Autumn Symposium Annual Dinner on Wednesday 20th, the night before the show which was a very enjoyable evening”.

Carbon Group welcomed Graham Sutherland, Sales and Applications Area Manager from Sacco to the stand for the day. Graham’s presence was very helpful on the day, where he advised customers on our starter culture range.
