Boast about what you do

British Food Fortnight – time to boast about what you do:

The opportunity:
Making the most of the opportunity – what YOU can do:

  • In shops – make yours a shop-window for British produce
  • In pubs – put British fare on the menu in your local
  • In schools – play your part in educating the next generation of consumers

Remember …

  • Positive sells: negative doesn't
  • No more talk about poor us: boast about your product
  • Give clear messages - British food is fresh, tasty and nutritious and it meets the most stringent health and animal welfare standards.

Be an advocate for your industry - your time is NOW!
