Yesterday I visited the Artisan Cheese Fair at Melton Mowbray.
Just like last year, this was a very enjoyable event, showcasing food producers and their produce from across the country. I am a strong supporter of local, traditional food production.
You can find out here why I am campaigning to maintain the historic connection between Stilton and the East Midlands.
As part of the European election campaign I am looking forward to visiting food producers across the region to discuss the challenges they face and how Labour MEPs can work to support them.
