To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps he is taking to promote the sale (a) in the UK and (b) globally of food produced in the UK.
5 September 2017
We are using the UK’s growing reputation for high quality food and drink, with high standards of animal welfare, traceability and sustainability to increase demand for our great British products.
We are opening up public procurement to more small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and local producers. We are raising the profile and reputation of British food and drink overseas through the Food is GREAT campaign. Defra and DIT are also opening new markets and supporting exports in priority markets such as China, USA and India.
