Funding for food projects 'huge boost to UK farmers'

Almost £18 million worth of funding towards 15 UK-led food projects will be a huge boost to British farmers, Environment Secretary Liz Truss has said.

This move will mean that food served in canteens across the public sector can be more local, seasonal and tastier. This is a huge boost to British farmers and producers and for students, patients and employees who want to enjoy fantastic food
