AltEatsFest (Sunday 19th May) was born out of a love for food and a growing awareness of people’s intolerances and allergies. The AltEats guys think you shouldn't have to miss out on great taste if you're avoiding certain foods. With more and more people making active diet choices for lifestyle or intolerance reasons, it’s the perfect time for an event like this.

They also recognise that more than ever we’re all interested in where our food comes from, the story behind its journey to our plate and the people behind it. We want to support smaller, independent businesses who offer alternative options, taste and quality.

They’ve designed AltEatsFest with one goal in mind - to assemble a collection of the absolute best in alternative food suppliers. The event will be divided into food group alternatives: gluten-free, dairy-free and meat-free. There will also be lifestyle and homeware brands that produce fantastic products for the ethically-aware consumer.​

There’ll also be a series of engaging talks with some of the best minds on the alternative food scene.
