But how do we access it?
- We know that people are finding it hard to get access to local, fresh, nutritious and healthy food and are concerned about food security.
- We know that we all want to support Welsh Fishing, Farming and Sustainable Agriculture.
- We know our customers want to purchase products that have a positive impact on the local economy, environment and community.
