It’s British Food Fortnight from 21 September – 6 October, the annual national celebration of British food.
The campaign is encouraging people to buy, eat and cook regional food. During the fortnight people are encouraged to make a special effort to seek out British food when shopping, shop in local butchers, greengrocers, farm shops and marketsthat source locally and seek out food that is in season.
Marriage’s is committed to supporting the British food and farming industry. We source English wheat from local Essex farmers where possible, including from the family’s own arable farms only a few miles from Chelmer Mills. Many of the farmers that supply Marriage’s have been farming families for generations – the same is true of many of the smaller independent family run bakeries that purchase Marriage’s flour. Our home baking flour is available in independent farm shops and delis across East Anglia and beyond.
During British Food Fortnight, why not also do your bit to support British food by visiting your local independent bakery to sample some of their handcrafted, freshly made breads and cakes?
