It seems that many British consumers are now making a move towards supporting British producers, and we’ve seen many campaigns recently demanding fairer deals, for British produce to be stocked in supermarkets, and more recently for wonky vegetables to be accepted! With the launch of the Great British Food campaign, run by Defra and headed by... Read More
