Welsh Assembly Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths AM, has been presented with a hamper showcasing the best of Welsh farming by NFU Cymru.
The hamper, packed to the brim with delicious Welsh produce – much of it from the Royal Welsh Show’s feature county Carmarthenshire – is a symbol of NFU Cymru’s new ‘Proud to Produce’ campaign. The hamper features on bale stickers and gate banners lining the main routes to the Royal Welsh Showground, and depicts that farmers are proud to produce the nation’s food, care for the environment and manage the picturesque Welsh landscape.
NFU Cymru Director John Mercer said: “Our new Proud to Produce campaign highlights everything that is great about Welsh farming and we wanted to give the Cabinet Secretary a taste – quite literally – of what this fantastic industry has to offer.
“The Welsh hamper we have given to the Cabinet Secretary is overflowing with Welsh dairy products, fruit and vegetables – not to mention PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef. We all know that a healthy environment leads to healthy food and the Cabinet Secretary can enjoy this produce safe in the knowledge that it has been produced to world-leading standards by Welsh farmers who are proud to care for their environment and manage the Welsh landscape, too.”
