March one of the driest on record

March 2011 was the driest for nearly 60 years, according to provisional rainfall figures from the Met Office.

Average rainfall across the UK from 1-29 March was just 39.1mm – 41% of the month’s usual amount. England and Wales saw the lowest rainfall for almost 100 years, with Lincolnshire and East Anglia registering just a couple of millimetres of rain.

The early figures mean it was the driest March since 1953, when 41.6mm of rain fell. However wet weather during the last few days of the month means the Met Office’s final figures will be higher.

International Food & Drink Event 2011

On 14th March, SPL entered a stand at the International Food & Drink Event (IFE), which was held at the ExCeL in London.

During the event, we were able to establish new contacts as well as offer potential clients, an insight into the SPL set up and the range and quality of the produce we can provide nationally.

SPL’s Sales & Marketing Manager, David Collingwood declared the event a success, adding that the time spent at the ExCeL enabled him to showcase SPL’s capabilities to a large audience in a short space of time.
