Crofters Welcome Food Initiative

The Scottish Crofting Foundation have hailed the Scottish Government's food policy discussion and the forthcoming meeting with supermarket representatives hosted by the First Minister as ground-breaking.
SCF food spokesman Donald MacDonald said “the Scottish Government have taken an unprecedented step in recognising that we need to change the way in which we produce and consume food in Scotland. Their food discussion initiative is not only welcome but is extremely exiting. We have the chance now to make some fundamental changes, to look forward to doing what crofters do best – produce good, healthy, fresh food – and to get just reward for that. The fact that the supermarket representatives are willing to participate in the discussion is a very clear indicator that they too recognise the need to change.”
