    First post!! 

    What is the best gift you've received from a company when buying catering ingredients?

    Mine was a personal branded chef jacket which I still treasure to this day!

    What also would be your ideal free gift?

    Hope to receive some answers :) !

    Thanks,

    VIP at Oktoberfest.  all paid for and i was dancing with the band on stage and drinking schnapps under the stage with other members of the band.  not to Sound like a drunkfest, the stage was raised and there was a room under the stage for the band  members to chill in.  already talking to my rep for some tickets this year,  i even have my Lederhosen now.

    Sounds like an amazing freebie! Makes my chef jacket look a bit rubbish now haha!

    I would love to go to Oktoberfes,t definitely seems like a chef who enjoys a good beer dream trip.

    Did you have to buy much stock to get that or was it for being a loyal customer?

    yes it was cool but not too much of a big deal.  Salzburg is only 120km from munich a 90 min drive.  and we are the 5th biggest seller of Steigel beer so the beer rep invites us there
