Local and regional food is predominantly related to food miles and thus reducing the Carbon footprint. By buying locally you are shortening the food chain, and ensuring seasonal fresh produce of the highest quality and standard every time. By building a more locally based food economy one in which sustainable food production and traceability is integrated to enhance the local economic and environmental value.
Wales’s reputation for food production is centuries old with its unspoiled fertile agricultural land, rich fishing waters and mild climate producing a wealth of excellent produce, including some of the finest seafood in the UK.
