We attended the Dublin Veg Fest a few weeks back on 23rd & 24th September at Leinster cricket club and it was a fantastic weekend full of fun and great food and drinks. Our primary wish was to raise awareness of our vegan products, meet lots of new friends, and lean about other new great vegan foods and drinks .
Mrs Doyles Tea as a small business, and it is committed to providing high-quality vegan products to our customers. We decided to attend Dublin Veg Fest which is probably the biggest festival of this type in Ireland , in order to really meet with the vegan community, who have always loved our loose leaf teas and to let everyone taste our new tea blends and herbal infusions. And yes there was overwhelmingly positive feedback from everyone , yip everyone really loved our happy teas! and our wide selection of loose leaf teas and herbal infusions, which are mostly all sourced directly by Mrs Doyle and her team of lovely girls, while on their world tours each year.
We did lots of tastings and indeed many of our visitors bought their favourite teas especially our famous Irish Breakfast tea. This indicates a growing demand for vegan products and indeed for great loose leaf teas , and our presence at the festival allowed us to connect directly with lots of new customers and renew old friendships . Our participation in the festival of course helps get the word out , increased brand exposure but mostly its a great way to meet everyone who has supported us over the years and especially to show Mrs Doyle's support for animal rights which is close to all our hearts.
Our stand attracted a steady flow of visitors, and our teas received attention on social media platforms, which is good for everyone, sure Go On Go! .
The festival provided an opportunity to observe and learn from competitors in the vegan market and exchange great recipes for vegan cake which is the perfect cake for well tea and cake!
We also of course gained insights into current vegan and vegie trends, and new innovations, so keep an eye open for Mrs Doyle's vegan cakes coming soon! .
We meet lots of other businesses, influencers, and organizations in the vegan
community, who are really great bunch of people . These relationships might even lead to collaborations, and maybe even a few partnerships in the future, and yes conversations with festival attendees provided valuable insights into their preferences, needs, and expectations from vegan products.
So it was a great weekend and attending in Dublin Veg Fest was a positive and insightful experience for Mrs Doyle's Tea and our team of lovely girls really enjoyed meeting everyone who came along , so that was just great to see you all and, can't wait until Christmas when we will meet again at the upcoming Christmas festivals.
O' yes look out for us at the Christmas market in Kilruddery house and gardens which runs from middle of November until 23 December 2023 , come along and meet us for a happy tea Go On Go . .
