From Cheddar cheese to Portland lamb, Red Ruby Devon beef to Cornish clotted cream, we think the South West makes some of the best food in the world.
Behind each of these iconic products is a bunch of hardworking and passionate people. As the region’s leading insurer specialising in farming and rural businesses, we are very proud that many of them are our Members. While none of us would be able to enjoy such fantastic local produce without the dedication of our farmers and food producers, we don’t think they get the recognition they deserve.
That is why we are putting the spotlight on the people behind our produce:
the Real Food Heroes.
So, next time you tuck into a Sunday roast, enjoy a glass of cider or savour the first strawberries of the season, give a thought to the people who produced it.
Join us in celebrating the heritage, history and hard work behind the food and drink that comes out of our region.
