Campaign to encourage people to choose Cornish

Cornish food producers are welcoming a campaign encouraging people to buy local produce.

The Choose Cornish Campaign is asking people to consider spending an extra 50 pence a week on Cornish produce to help support local farmers and suppliers. It could be worth £10 million a year to Cornwall's economy.

he idea is being launched as part of the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival which starts today in Truro.
