Boris Johnson has received a giant, edible reminder of how proud British farmers are of the food they produce and the standards they attain.
Red Tractor Assurance chairman Baroness Lucy Neville-Rolfe and chief executive Jim Moseley hand delivered a giant cake to Number 10 Downing Street, marking the start of a year of celebrations as the scheme turns 20 years old.
Baroness Neville-Rolfe said: “As we enter our 20th year and we celebrate what has been achieved in the past two decades, we wanted to take this opportunity to remind the Government that while UK farming holds itself to a high standard, any trade agreement must demand the same of other countries – making it an equal and fair playing field.
“To mark the occasion, we presented this wonderful cake to the Prime Minister. We are told he was very impressed.”
