Eat with the seasons

You can enjoy fresh, quality produce by buying what’s in season. Eating seasonal produce is a great way to back British farming.

If in doubt – ask

Remember, shopping at a local butcher or independent shop doesn’t guarantee that the food you’re buying is British, so if it’s not clear, it’s best to ask.

Can’t find a seasonal British ingredient on the supermarket shelf, or looking at a menu that’s a bit vague on country of origin? Ask the manager where the food is from – and vote with your feet if you’re not happy with the answer.
