As part of the celebrations, the team at Rachel’s were delighted to inform all National Assembly for Wales and Welsh Assembly Government politicians and staff that Rachel’s Organic yogurts are now stocked and featured in the National Assembly catering and retail facilities under the auspices of the new contractor, Compass Food Service.
During a recent visit to the Assembly, Rachel’s Organic arranged free samples for all, as well as giving politicians and staff the chance to meet eponymous company founder Rachel Rowlands.
Elin Jones, Minister for Rural Affairs & Agriculture was also in attendance to launch a new Assembly scheme promoting local sourcing of food and drink in Wales.
Elin comments: “There are clear benefits from increasing the amount of local food and drink purchased in Wales. Buying locally reduces the miles food travels, reducing carbon emissions. In Wales we have a range of high quality local produce and Rachel’s Organic is a prime example of this. I am delighted Rachel’s yogurts and desserts are now being stocked in all Assembly catering outlets – not only because it is a Welsh company but also because their products taste absolutely delicious!”
