Hampshire Fare Awarded Second in National Food Competition
Hampshire Fare has been awarded joint second place in the national Love British Food Awards 2017, for their inspiring projects encouraging young people to eat locally and healthily.
Tracy Nash, commercial manager at Hampshire Fare, says it is important to show children where their food comes from.
She said: “Hampshire Fare are in a unique position, to introduce the county’s food and drink heritage to the next generation and educate them about the health and taste benefits of eating locally and seasonally.
“We see it as an important part of our role to show children where their food comes from, as we have found that if we show children the source of their food, they are much happier to try it.”
Tracy Nash continued: “Children are key to ensuring future generations eat more wisely, and eat less, but choose better quality foods.”
The competition is now in its fifth year, and prides itself in acknowledging the people and organisations behind the most imaginative and inclusive celebrations of local food across the country.
Alexia Robinson, founder of Love British Food, said: “We are delighted with the high standard of responses to the competition with entries received from schools, care homes, caterers and community groups.
“The initiative is getting bigger and better every year and we are already planning for next year.”
