Rosie & Jim make their way to Stockholm for the Free From Functional Food Ingredients Expo today.
This huge event is the 6th Edition of Europe’s well-established trade event for Free-From, Functional and Vegan Food.
The leading European Free From Functional Food Expo offers the opportunity to meet up with more than 270 exhibitors from over 35 different countries, presenting the latest product innovations covering gluten free, lactose free, vegan, sugar free, egg free, functional and more healthy food with nutritional or allergy free benefits. The Free From Functional Food Expo and its conference attract a high quality audience of buyers from large retail chains, bio, health, food service and catering companies. It is more than a trade show - Free From Functional Food Expo is the ultimate free from experience.
There will be a full conference programme in two dedicated theatres during the two day event. Experts will reveal all the latest insight into the market - and what the future holds. This year there will be even more to debate - with topics covering functional food and veganism.
Dates: 16 - 17 MAY STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN
If you are attending please come by and meet the Rosie & Jim team!
We will be exhibiting within Bord Bia’s stand at G25.
Rosie & Jim are pleased to donate £100 to Eamon McCay, Managing Director of Frylite, one of our suppliers, as he marks World Homeless Day by sleeping out overnight in Strabane .
Mr McCay writes...
...on Saturday 13th October, I'm marking World Homeless Day by sleeping out overnight in Strabane. By doing this, I hope to raise awareness of homelessness and much needed funds for our chosen charities throughout Ireland.
Almost 10,000 people described themselves as homeless in Ireland this year. That includes men, women, couples and families. These are staggering figures, but the most important message is that we can all help.
You don't have to sleep out to help. €15 feeds a whole family for 2 days. £50 helps parents to learn new skills that will help them work their way out of homelessness while meeting their children's needs.
£100 helps keep families safe and warm during the cold winter months when the heating needs to be turned up for babies and children.
Best of luck to all taking part in this fundraising event.
You can donate to this most dererving cause by visiting the Frylite GoFundMe Page at www.gofundme.com/frylite-celebrating-30years.
Rosie & Jim donate a Chicken Hamper to the fundraiser event by the Royal School Cavan Parents Association.
The funds raised are for sports facilities and a baby monitor for Cavan General Hospital. A very worthy cause.
Thanks to the Parents Association for this lovely letter...
"..I would like on behalf of the Royal School Cavan Parents Association to thank you most sincerly for your generous donation of a chicken hamper for our Monster Auction held on Friday last March 24th in the Cavan Crystal Hotel, which you donated via Georgina McCaffrey.
We raised over €18000 and are deeply indebted to the many local businesses and those further afield, including yours, for the success of this fund-raising event. The funds raised are for the indoor sports facilities and towards a baby monitor for the special care unit of Cavan General Hospital.
Wishing ou every success in the future..."

Susan O’Keeffe has Motor Neurone Disease, a progressive condition that affects how messages are sent to the muscles. She can’t speak any more and has very limited mobility; she can type with one finger. Even though she has a very serious illness and is facing life’s end far too early, her focus is on helping others. She has generously offered to help Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services to raise funds for the build and fit-out of 36 new single, state-of-the-art, palliative care bedrooms at the Hospice in Harold’s Cross.
We received a remarkable letter from Susan, telling us her amazing story, and the incredible benefit the Hospice at Blackrock is to her and other’s in a similar place to her.
We, at Rosie & Jim, were humbled to be able to donate €250 to the Hospice for these crucial building works.
