Cornish Food goes National!

On Friday 17 February, I was pleased to be represented at the Tesco Cornish Food Sourcing event held at Skinners Brewery.  The Truro and Falmouth constituency as well as Cornwall as a whole produces many fantastic local brands of food and drink, and I think Tesco are doing a great job in marketing locally sourced goods, both at branches in the Southwest, and in some cases nationwide.

I was particularly impressed to see that some of the Skinners Cornish Ale varieties, such as Betty Stoggs, Healey’s Cyder Farm and Rowes Pasties, have been able to expand their distribution to a national level through Tesco, whereas smaller companies such as Fal Fish, Trevarrian Creamery and St Ewe Eggs, all of which employ constituents from Truro and Falmouth, have been able to distribute their products throughout the County and the Southwest region as a whole.

This is a impressive advertisement for Cornwall, growing its reputation as a specialist food provider, both for visitors, locals, and for those outside the county who can now taste what the rest of us have already experienced!
