After the uncertainty of Christmas celebrations over the past two years, fine food distributor Cotswold Fayre is confident that this year both retailers and consumers alike will plan early for 2022’s festive period.
With 1,340 product lines, 65 of which are from certified B Corps, Cotswold Fayre is revealing a selection of gifting products.
Alissia Festa, seasonal buyer at Cotswold Fayre says: “This year we have focused on providing retailers with some exciting alternatives to the traditional advent calendars and gift sets.
“Love Corn has introduced a Milk Chocolate & Sea Salt Gift Jar and Lucy’s Dressings are now available in a Gift Box.”
Last year Cotswold Fayre saw an increase in festive alcoholic products, in particular its Christmas-themed gins. The novelty of eye-catching bottles and different flavours created a popular gift category.
Festa added: “After the popularity of our alcoholic products last year, we have added more lines to our 2022 catalogue such as, Winter Secco, a lightly spiced sparkling wine, Finders Christmas Pudding Rum and The Reverend Hubert’s Winter Gin Liqueur”.
“It is also important to us to offer variety and cater for those who prefer to enjoy non-alcoholic options, such as Everleaf, a non-alcoholic aperitif brand which uses sustainably sourced botanicals for its drinks.”
With the growth and innovation from its suppliers, Cotswold Fayre is devoted to ensuring that their brands are sustainable and ethically sourced.
“The launch of Cajuu, an ethically sourced nut brand which uses 100% plastic free packaging, is the perfect sustainable addition to the buffet table this Christmas,” concludes Festa.
