Castell Howell rakes in award for children’s food project

Llanelli-based Castell Howell has been recognised for its significant contribution to 4theregion’s ‘Gower Fields to Forks’ project at the Children’s Food Awards.

The project won the ‘Yummy Award for the Best Local Initiative Improving Children’s Food’.

Castell Howell collaborated with local farms and Bishopston Comprehensive School for the project, which was headed up by 4theregion, a membership alliance working to bring about positive change in South Wales.

The project gave pupils the opportunity to learn about local food production, sustainability, cooking, marketing and agriculture. Castell Howell supplied vegetables grown in the Gower fields and delivered them to the school.

Ed Morgan, group corporate social responsibility manager at Castell Howell, said: “We are so proud to have been involved in this initiative, and winning this award is the cherry on top of the cake.

“We hope this collaboration between supply chain partners can develop and flourish, not only to improve children’s food, but also to nurture and inspire the next generation of horticulturalists.”
