Christchurch hosts food show

10:27 am on 16 September 2012

Christchurch food businesses are getting some exposure at the national Food Show being held in the city.

The annual show has already run in Auckland and Wellington, and its final destination is CBS Arena in Christchurch this weekend.

Show organiser Dona White says the Canterbury earthquakes have resulted in business losses for many in Christchurch's food sector and it is important for them to have a platform to exhibit their products.

She says about a third of the 100 exhibitors are Christchurch-based. The Food Show ends at 5pm on Sunday.
