It’s not just The Orange Food Box Company singing the praises of Derbyshire produce, the county has a great reputation throughout the world as recent export figures demonstrate. Speaking in the Derby Telegraph, Derbyshire MP Heather Wheeler expressed her delight at the county’s food and drink export figures which demonstrate how the Government’s economic plan is paying off.
Exports of Derbyshire fruit and vegetables increased throughout the 2013/14 period by some 40 per cent on the previous year, amounting to a huge £65 million. Mrs Wheeler commented to the newspaper that “Our products are of the highest standard and clearly hugely sought after, which is a well-deserved accolade for all of our local producers. South Derbyshire is home to many companies in the industry and it is a real pleasure to see them grow and flourish in this way.”
As we’ve said before, as part of our successful Derbyshire catering formula, we strive to source local produce wherever possible, as we wholeheartedly agree that Derbyshire produce is some of the very best produce going. From the potatoes that make our crispy chips to the beef used to make our wholesome flame grilled beef burgers, no wonder there’s such a demand for locally produced food and drink.
