NEIL Hamilton, AM for Mid & West Wales, and Leader of UKIP Wales, is flying the flag for Welsh farming produce.
Mr Hamilton, a member of the Senedd’s Rural Affairs Committee, joined fellow AM’s in Cardiff, to take part in the Farmers Union of Wales ‘Farmhouse Breakfast’ initiative.
Neil Hamilton said:
“It is a wonderful event and a great opportunity to showcase the breadth and wealth of quality breakfast produce which is available all over Wales.
“I strongly back the annual FUW’s initiative to encourage people to think about where their breakfast food comes from and to support the farmers who produce it.
“Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and, here in Wales, there is a huge variety of top quality farm produce. Not only the ever-popular bacon, sausage, eggs and speciality dairy products, breads and cereals, but also my particular favourite Welsh laver bread.
“I was delighted to be at this year’s event in the Senedd to show my support for all our hardworking farmers. I also welcomed the opportunity to meet up with FUW President, Glynn Roberts to discuss current farming issues.”
The Breakfast Week was held all over Wales from January 20-26 and apart from promoting a healthy start to the day, it highlighted the wide variety of top quality Welsh breakfast produce.
It also gave farmers the opportunity to discuss and share their concerns over the future of the farming industry in Wales.
The FUW campaign aims to raise the profile of Welsh produce and get everyone to understand the important role the food and drink sector plays in their everyday lives.
The breakfast week also provides an opportunity to promote the quality premium local produce that farmers grow for us every day of the year, and throughout breakfast week the FUW will shine a spotlight on the importance of our rural economy.
