Exhibitors include many of the region’s leading catering suppliers and wholesalers who will be offering fantastic new product ranges and great services tailored to the Scillonian customer.

Supply Scilly has once again being organised by the Islands’ Partnership in collaboration with Tregarthen’s Hotel. David Jackson, Executive Director at the Islands’ Partnership says: “We’re delighted to be organising Supply Scilly again this year with the support of Tregarthen’s Hotel.  Like last year, the weather looks to be very settled and sunny as all the exhibitors arrive to set up. This pre-season event is a fantastic opportunity for businesses on Scilly to have dedicated access to many of the region’s leading suppliers. I’m sure that lots of good business will be done over the next two days.”
