I was delighted last week to give my support to British farmers on Back British Farming day.

Today marks the start of British Food Fortnight, held each autumn British Food Fortnight is the biggest annual, national celebration of British food and drink. Food and drink is a vital part of our manufacturing sector, contribute over £100 billion to our economy and employing 3.8 million people.

This is a great opportunity, to come together and promote the benefits of buying and eating our own home-grown British produce.
