The owners and creative force behind Gift Favor Baskets ( recently returned from another successful scouting trip to the BBC Good Food Show held in Birmingham, UK. Gift Favor Baskets makes the annual trek to the ultimate foodie trade show to discover interesting new products and stay abreast of new trends and developments in the gourmet food industry.

Gift Favor Baskets attends this annual international food show to increase their exposure to the international gourmet food industry, often discovering exciting new products with an international flair. Armed with delicious new food products, current market trends and knowledge, Gift Favor Baskets is able to cater their gourmet gift baskets accordingly, adding trendy new products and delicious new items to their gift baskets. The UK-based food show also enables Gift Favor Baskets to grow their line of international gourmet foods, finding new food suppliers that may not be readily available in the USA.

Gift Favor Baskets applies an international approach to their unique gift baskets, updating their offerings frequently to include new and unusual products. The international influence found at the Good Food Show appeals to Gift Favor Baskets owner John Fields, who currently resides in the UK, while running the US-based gift basket business. Their approach to gift baskets reflects a more eclectic, international collection of gourmet goods, similar to the wide assortment of food found at the Good Food Show.

Historically, Gift Favor Baskets has had great luck finding new sources and adding new products to their gift baskets. This year’s trip to the Good Food Show revealed fresh cheeses, savory spices and mouth-watering sweets. While some products can’t be shipped to the US, many of these gourmet food suppliers can and do ship stateside. Gift Favor Baskets has plans to carry some of these exciting new products, including a unique line of chili products offered by Chili Queen.

The 2007 Good Food Show included over 600 exhibitors, with hundreds of food suppliers, dozens of celebrity chef demonstrations and a wide assortment of culinary equipment. This year’s visit found many of the same food purveyors as years past, with a large increase in the overall number of both exhibitors and gourmet foods. The popularity of the show draws more exhibitors every year, providing a great marketplace for those in the gourmet food and gift basket industry.

The food show caters to both a wholesale and retail audience, providing a unique opportunity to showcase new products and obtain immediate feedback. The wide assortment of products features many UK-based companies, such as locally produced meats, cheeses and baked goods. In addition, there are food products from all over the world, drawing from all areas of Europe and offering a distinctly international flavor.

Gift Favor Baskets looks forward to applying their newfound products and knowledge to their current line of gourmet gifts. With so many great new products introduced, the next generation of gift baskets is bound to be exciting.
