Growing old… year two’s highlights!

As Taste of Bath goes into its third year, its time to reflect on 2017 and share the cool successes of what we have been doing.

Its been a couple of months of hibernation, reflection and planning, but we are still here, surviving the 100 hour weeks and hundreds of orders of Christmas!

2017 was a record year with us tripling our revenue, expanding our team and promoting Bath produce to even more people!
