Promoting Flintshire Food Producers in Parliament

Yesterday I met with businesses from the food industry to promote them within Parliament. This was part of Cheshire food day in Parliament.

I met with David Wells, from Joseph Heler Cheese, and Edward Chatwin, of Chatwins Bakery, at the promotional event.

Joseph Heler Cheese is the largest independent regional cheese producer in the UK. It is a family owned and run businesses that goes back to 1957, with the creamery being located in Cheshire. However, the milk used in the cheese comes from Mold and the surrounding area.

Chatwins Bakery, although based in Nantwich, has a bakery in Holywell. Chatwins was established in 1913 when the bread was delivered by horse and cart, nowadays you can find quality baked bread and fantastic flaky pastries for sale in their shops in and around the English / Welsh border.

It was a pleasure to meet with David and Edward to help promote quality food from our area. Flintshire is county known for its gastronomy and I was proud to help support these local businesses in Parliament. Showing other Parliamentarians the importance of the food industry to our community.

From the dairy farmers in and around Mold, to the bakery in Holywell High Street we know how to produce the best products around. That was on show today, with delicious cheese produced by Joseph Heler Cheese and moreish breads and cakes from Chatwins.

Edward was also giving out gingerbread men with political rosettes on. I couldn’t refuse to have a picture taken with a gingerbread man with a Labour rosette on. It also tasted delicious!
