Local food, focal point

OUR industry is the most important industry in the province, said UFU chairman Will Taylor, announcing a co-ordinated campaign to promote the sale of home-produced food to the people of Northern Ireland. Every major food retailer in the province is involved, he said. and while details will be announced soon, the start date is Sep 24.

Buying locally produced food creates jobs and thriving communities, added Hilda Stewart, chairman of the UFU farm family committee which has already carried out a leaflet campaign and is working with schools and colleges to get the message home.

We can give customers value for money, says UFU chairman Will Taylor announcing the initiative.
