STEVENSON SUPPORTS PARLIAMENTARY MOTION BACKING THE PURCHASE OF LOCAL FOOD

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has added his support to his SNP colleague, Rob Gibson’s Parliamentary Motion supporting local food.

Commenting on the Motion, Mr Stevenson said:

“I agree wholeheartedly with Rick Stein’s Christmas message that to source the best food, families should buy local produce. The North-east is home to some of the best producers of food who utilise locally sourced ingredients.

“Local produce has a reputation for high quality and excellent taste. More and more people are turning their backs on the bland, mass-produced fare doled out by the multi-nationals and are beginning to appreciate that the local butcher, baker or fishmonger offer great value as well as great taste.

“It also helps reduce ‘food miles’ and contributes to the environment if we all buy local. I hope that all MSPs will champion the Food Heroes Christmas Message as I do.”
