Lulu Hypermarket is my favourite place to shop and The Food Expo 2018 – Taste the best of the World was an impressive selection of food from the world.
The event is dedicated to promoting the impressive range of high-quality food items from around the world. It also creates an engaging shopping experience for the customers, while continuing to provide shoppers with the most competitive prices in the store and online.
As part of the Food Expo 2018, several food-related competitions including Cookery Contests, Junior Chef Contests, Family Cooking, Salads & Sandwich, Cake Icing, Fruit & Veg Carvings & Potato Peeling, as well as live-cooking demonstrations, are being held in the stores.
During the Food Expo 2018 shoppers can win Gold, Range Rover, FJ cruisers, Quadbikes, Gift Vouchers and more. For our fans on social media, there is a game which can be played by adults and children alike to win prizes.
