Wiltshire Farm Foods part of the Apetito Group

For those who’ve worked hard all their lives, maintaining independence is particularly important – especially when it comes to mealtimes.

Established for 21 years, Wiltshire Farm Foods is part of the apetito group – Trowbridge’s largest private employer – and are here to make life easier for those who can’t get out and about as much, so they can eat well and look after themselves.

Ingredients are selected from carefully-approved suppliers and prepared by a team of nutritionists and award-winning chefs in our kitchens in Trowbridge. We offer 250 tasty recipes providing nutrition, value, and lots of flavour.

Convenience is a key part of the Wiltshire Farm Foods offering. All meals can be ordered over the phone or online. They’re then delivered by a friendly, local delivery driver, who is always happy to put meals away in the freezer if preferred.

Trowbridge Arts Festival

This is a brand new festival for the County Town of Wiltshire dedicated to promoting all genres of arts as well as our wealth of local heritage.

The Food Fest will fall on the closing day of the Arts Festival which has seen a great deal of energy and excitement in the town since it started last week.  Highlights have included a masterclass with world renowned clarinettist Michael Collins; comedian Lee Hurst and on the day of the Food Fest a rare concert by Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman, performing together in advance of their 2013 tour.

Set to become an annual event, the Town Team are pleased and proud to be part of such an exciting event.  For a flavour of what has been going on over the Arts Festival fortnight, check out our home page to see the official video of the first weeks events shot by another of our sponsors John le Brocq of DBS Films.

Digiprint Trowbridge

Established in 2001, the DigiPrint Group was formed by two ex franchise print shop managers with over 40 years experience collectively in the print trade.

Aiming to bring back the personal service to customers requiring print, they invested in the latest digital imaging equipment to provide a fast and friendly service, and not compromising the quality of printing produced.

The Trowbridge shop opened just 18 months ago but already they are firmly entrenched in the local community, providing excellent service to businesses and services in the area, as well as being passionate about in being involved in local matters.

All posters, banners and postcards were kindly donated to the Food Fest by Digiprint Trowbridge and enormous thanks for your generosity.
