Welsh Government Support For Food Festivals

15 Mar

I’ve had a couple of calls today asking when Wag’s list for the food festivals they are supporting will be published. Not sure why these calls weren’t made to the obvious place – Wag’s own office, as I can assure you all that I will not have priority on this information. According to Wag’s Press Release that was dated 30th January, Wag are consulting with the Food and Farming Panel and will be issued week commencing March 19th.

As soon as I have the list, it will be sent around all our Best Of Welsh & Borders producers and posted on welshfoodbites and

Wag’s Press Release was posted in full on welshfoodbites on 1st February. 

In the meantime does have a draft list of event dates and contacts on its website which includes those that may be funded, plus many more that run under their own steam.

    I’m not sure the Food and Farming Panel will make a huge difference to this year’s selection and the amounts they will be given.
    This has to be a committee put together by wag and so they are just paying lip service to us producers.
    How many producers are on this panel?
    rather insulting to be treated as though we are thick and stupid but if it keeps wag happy and in jobs ———-

    Pleased I’m not the only one waiting for this Food and Farming Panel to impress us with the understanding on what our industry needs.
    Remind me how many micro and really small producers are on this panel…………………….think I’m right in none
    Well done wag
