Good food needs to be a priority because it determines our health both physical and economic. In Scotland we produce the finest food and drink in the world and it’s essential we capitalise on that.

“I’m delighted that Angus has stepped up to the mark and can’t wait to see what action this inspires locally with the fantastic producers in the North-east.
