We're committed to supporting local suppliers

Local supppliers

Warwick Conferences is supporting Go For Growth: Trade Local, launched by the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, to encourage companies to tap into the goods, services and expertise across the city and county to help grow the region’s economy.

We have Soil Association accreditation for our commitment to using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible – with the closest being free range eggs from Seven Acre Farm just 1.5 miles away.

Beef and lamb are sourced by British Premium Meats from livestock market Rugby Farmers Mart at Stoneleigh Park, ice-cream is made by Warwickshire Gelato in Leamington, and it serves beer brewed by Purity, based in Great Alne, near Alcester.

Other local supplies include fruit and vegetables from E. Sidwell in Leamington, who source the bulk of fresh produce from growers in Evesham and Worcestershire.

Mark Ralph, Head of Food at Warwick Conferences, said: “We are fortunate to have some of the country’s best produce right on our doorstep and always endeavour to make the most of it, which reflects the aims of the Trade Local campaign.

“By using locally sourced ingredients, we are supporting local producers and suppliers, and as a consequence, the local economy which is important to us.”

All of the food served across its venues – Scarman, Radcliffe, The Slate – and Conference Park is prepared on site by its award-winning catering team. At least 75 per cent of the dishes are freshly prepared from unprocessed ingredients.

The wide range of meals, from buffet lunches and restaurant dining to banquets and barbecues, are served at its diverse facilities which can host small meetings for two to large-scale events for up to 1,200 delegates.

“People are more aware of the food they consume than ever before and are increasingly keen to know where it has come from and how it has been produced,” Mark added.

“We always display information about the menus in our restaurants which lists the seasonal produce and locally sourced ingredients we are using, and the standards we have met to achieve the Soil Association accreditation.”
