Alexia Robinson, Founder, Love British Food and British Food Fortnight
“Now in its 18th year British Food Fortnight has been so popular and powerful in inspiring people around the country. Last year in excess of 1.5million British meals were served during the Fortnight through schools, universities, hospitals, care homes and corporates. 3,000+ shops, restaurants and pubs took part in addition to thousands of events in villages and towns. Changing times bring both challenges and opportunities for Britain's farmers and food producers and we are delighted to welcome Ruth Hansom to join the team to lead the way in celebrating and promoting British food.”
Ruth Hansom says:
“I am honoured to have been asked to come on board. I truly believe, it is our responsibility as chefs to source ingredients local, seasonally and sustainably. I think it’s important to support small British suppliers who are really taking the time to give us such great quality.”
