Audio: Cornwall Food and Drink


As the Cornwall Food and Drink Festival gets underway in Truro, Matthew Clarke talks to organiser Ruth Huxley and Cornwall Chamber CEO Kim Conchie.

As well as discussing this year’s festival (September 28-30), the pair talk about the Choose Cornish campaign to support local produce, which was officially launched at Truro Cathedral yesterday.

Liberal Democrat MP Dan Rogerson is lending his support to the campaign and said: “I am in no doubt that Cornwall produces the finest food and drink in the country, and it is right that we do all we can to support high quality, locally produced, fresh and seasonal food, as well as the farmers and businesses that produce and sell it.

“Choosing Cornish is important because the money spent stays within Cornwall and the local economy, rather than going toward profits made outside the Duchy.”
