Huw has showed his support for the Welsh agricultural community by pledging to back NFU Cymru’s ‘It’s Time to Back Welsh Farming’ campaign at the Royal Welsh Show.
The ‘It’s Time to Back Welsh Farming’ campaign encourages consumers to show their support for farmers in Wales by pledging to buy Welsh produce. Huw has been a long-time champion for local and regional farming produce, and a big supporter of the many family-run farms throughout Ogmore.
After meeting with NFU Cymru officeholders at the Llanelwedd showground to discuss how he could best show his support for Welsh farmers and champion their produce, Huw said:“Wales’ farmers play a vital role in contributing to food security, economic and community development and environmental sustainability. It’s important that consumers support the industry by thinking and buying Welsh when they head to the shops and I encourage people to back this campaign.
NFU Cymru President Stephen James added, “We are grateful to Huw Irranca-Davies AM for lending his support to NFU Cymru’s ‘It’s Time to Back Welsh Farming’ campaign during his visit to this year’s Royal Welsh Show. There is no doubt that this is a challenging time for the agricultural industry at the moment, so it’s good to know that Huw will champion Welsh farming and produce in his area.”
