A total of 11 projects have
been accepted in this round of the scheme, which has been
running for four years.

developing a local branded fresh pork supply, developing
locally sourced production for butchers, farm shops and
packers and creating a new range of products requested

is due to be opened later in the year so there are still
opportunities for people to apply.
