Hospitality providers in Swale and Thanet can learn how to source and serve an official Kent Breakfastor Hamper at free workshops being run by Produced in Kent and Visit Kent.
The Swale workshop is at the Ferry House Inn on the Isle of Sheppey, on Tuesday, October 8, from 10.30am to 1pm.
The Thanet workshop is at Quex Barn, Quex Park, Birchington, on Tuesday, October 15, from 10.30am to 1pm.
The Kent Breakfast workshops are perfect for hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs, restaurants, cafes and public houses keen to stand out from the crowd and share the best of local produce with their guests and customers.
Self-catering businesses can also benefit by providing their guests with a welcoming Kent Hamper of local produce.
Every business serving a Kent Breakfast, which must include at least 60 per cent local produce, or providing guests with a welcoming Kent Hamper, will be officially accredited and entitled to display the campaign logo on all their marketing materials and in their windows.
The free workshop will cover how to source produce from local suppliers, extend seasonality of local items, cost and portion control and what can be included in place of more commonly used, non-Kent produce.
“Hospitality businesses that have already signed up to be part of the Kent Breakfast project have found it is a fantastic selling point which has brought them rewards in terms of their ability to market themselves as somewhere to visit that provides a real taste of the county,” said Sally Roger of Visit Kent.
