Councillor Clive Davies, Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration, said: “This is excellent news for our food producers here in Ceredigion. It’s fantastic to see so much quality produce being recognised, many of which have used the Food Centre Wales facilities at Horeb to develop and fine tune their product for the consumer market. Congratulations to everyone who gained this recognition and to food businesses who need to develop their product, contact Food Centre Wales.”
