Members from the Yorkshire Federation of Young Farmers attended the M&S stand at the Great Yorkshire Show where they learned about ethically sourced game products from the UK.
M&S, a sponsor of England’s premier agricultural event, hosted an interactive ‘Gameshow’ to educate the public and farmers about the range of game available in-store and the processes that M&S carries out to ensure quality and freshness.
It invited members from the Yorkshire Federation of Young Farmers to its stand to take part in the ‘Gameshow’, which saw contestants learn about sustainable and ethical sourcing of game products, while battling it out to correctly answer a series of questions about game.
M&S offers customers a range of high quality, 100 per cent British game throughout the main game season, sourced from traditional estates in Northumberland, Yorkshire and the Scottish Borders.
As part of its commitment to sourcing the best quality game, M&S only supplies game that has been reared by traditionally skilled game keepers.
Tom Harvey, M&S Game Buyer, said:
“As part of our Plan A commitments, M&S is dedicated to sourcing as much of its food as possible from the UK and Republic of Ireland in order to cut carbon emissions and create a more sustainable future for UK and Irish agriculture.”
