Holly Shackleton, Speciality Food Magazine
Holly Shackleton is the editor of Speciality Food, the market leading magazine in the fine food industry, which has informed, educated and inspired independent retailers since 2002.
As well as reporting on food industry news, collating opinions from some of the sector's biggest names and offering advice on subjects as diverse as display, diversification and staffing, Speciality Food keeps a close eye on the latest and greatest products entering the fine food market - and the people who create them.
Throughout her time at Speciality Food, Holly has presented and chaired panels at events such as Bread & Jam, Farm Shop & Deli Show and Natural & Organic Products Europe, judged at product and retail awards in Britain, Scotland and Ireland, and travelled overseas to explore some of the finest food the world has to offer.
Holly is passionate about supporting the growing number of young businesses entering the sector, which is why in 2017 she launched the New Producer Awards. The final of these awards will be held at Bread & Jam on Thursday 4th October. Holly will also be part of our panel discussions in the Shoptalk room on Friday. Get your tickets here.
