Katy Truss, Fabulous Food Finds
I have over 12 years experience of working in the food and drink industry; spread across consumer exhibitions, events, marketing, social media and food writing. Having managed the speciality food content for the BBC Good Food Shows, I formed strong relationships with food groups and associations, chefs, buyers, influencers and of course the producers too. This experience has given me valuable insight, knowledge and connections in the industry and I love to use this to help producers grow their businesses.
I set up my own business, Fabulous Food Finds which has two sides; consulting exhibition organisers by helping them source the best food and drink producers and also promoting amazing producers to food lovers through my website, social media channels and partnerships with other print and online publications.
I am the go-to artisan and speciality food consultant for the BBC Good Food Shows and Historic Royal Palace Food Festivals. This role includes supporting producers in their exhibiting experience and helping them to maximise ROI and success at the shows.
I regularly judge for the Great Taste Awards and use my tasting expertise to approve producers and curate the BBC Good Food Show Champions scheme, along with acting as chair of judges and coordinator of their Producers Bursary Awards.
I relocated to North Norfolk 5 years ago where I love living by the seaside with my family, eating fabulous food and juggling work, life and my toddlers Alfie and Lottie.
