Hospitality, catering and other food and drink businesses in the Lochaber area now have the opportunity to attend the next Williamson Walkabout trade event scheduled for Wednesday 25th April 2018. The free to attend event comes hot on the heels of a highly successful Walkabout held in Stornoway in March.

Customers and prospective customers from Fort William, Mallaig, Drumnadrochit, Fort Augustus, Spean Bridge, Ardnamurchan, Ballachulish, Kinlochleven and Glencoe will have a great chance to find out more and see and sample hundreds of products from around 40 of our key food and drink suppliers who hail from all over the UK. Entry is for the trade only and bookings can be made quickly and conveniently at

Suppliers represented, many of whom are Scottish or local to the Highlands and Islands, will all be under one roof at the Moorings Hotel, near Fort William. They will attend the event in person providing demonstrations, offering free tastings and highlighting the key benefits of their products. The trade only event will help join up the food sector, resulting in better product knowledge and in turn it will help those attending to enhance their food and drink offering and increase profitability.

A wide selection of goods from artisan cheese, craft beers and premium soft drinks to an array of catering ingredients, wines, beverages, essential kitchen supplies and cakes will be on offer. A fresh produce display will also be on show.

The event is aimed at anyone from the Lochaber catering, hospitality and retail trades and is free of charge. Hotel, restaurant and café owners are therefore welcome to attend along with their staff which can include chefs, bar staff and cleaning personnel.

All suppliers will offer a one-day only rich promotional deal that provides excellent value for local businesses currently planning their Spring and Summer offerings.

The Lochaber Walkabout is a thank you from Williamson’s to its valued customers. As well as free samples, tasters and a goody bag, high quality catering and hospitality is provided throughout the day and recognises the fact that several customers will travel significant distances to the event.

It will also help those coming along to understand the diversity of Williamson’s range which now extends to over 3,000 product lines from dozens of different suppliers. The Show takes place at an ideal time as Williamson’s daily Monday to Saturday delivery schedule down the Great Glen and into Fort William and the surrounding area starts to prove popular with existing and new customers alike.

With the Highlands and Islands attracting wider global attention as a destination of choice, 2018 has every chance of providing another great opportunity to grow the north’s hospitality and catering sector with Williamson Foodservice standing by to help service this.

Its growing fleet of 30 vehicles cover everywhere from Lochaber, Skye, Ross-shire and the Western Isles to Inverness, Moray, Caithness and Sutherland as well as parts of Argyll.

Those attending can also catch up with others from the trade, network with new businesses or simply chat to Williamson’s staff and suppliers about their future plans or requirements in a designated meeting area.

Doors open at 10:30am on Wednesday 25th April 2018 at the Moorings Hotel, near Fort William. Entry is by ticket only and early booking to guarantee your place is recommended. This can be made easily and securely at
