Young Farmers Round-up
GWENT young farmers have been surveying hotels, public houses and other food outlets to discover where they purchase their meat and its country of origin. They discovered that most claimed to serve only British meat but were unsure when asked to prove the fact. Those that could prove they served British beef were given the MLC Proud to serve British beef poster and sticker.
