PAPRIKA are responsible for the creation and growth of https://skfoodiefriday.co.uk/ Foodie Friday in Stockport. From its launch in May 2013 as part of the first Love Your Local Market event, it has grown in terms of crowds, traders, stakeholders and reputation to become Greater Manchester’s Best Food and Drink Popup in the 2016 Manchester Food and Drink Awards.
The concept behind the event was threefold.
We believed that a street food event, if sufficient time were given, would be the ideal vehicle to bring about this transformation. It was!
The local community and surrounding businesses took the event to their heart and stuck with it long enough for it to become sustainable. It is now widely cited by the local authority and media as the catalyst for several grass-roots changes in the viability of niche food businesses in the town but also, for changing the perception that Stockport is a black hole for entrepreneurship and innovation.
In 2016, we achived peer recognition for both Foodie Friday and Stockport's emerging food culture, by winning Best Food and Drink Popup in Greater Manchester at the Manchester Food and Drink Awards.
With the help of PAPRIKA the delivery model is now being widely copied across Greater Manchester.
