Editor, Mike Lowe commented: “We were delighted to welcome as our special guest, HRH The Princess Royal, a Gloucestershire farmer in her own right. I see her decision to fit this event into her hectic schedule as a validation of the food and drink industry in this region, and of the importance of these awards. We are in the fortunate position in this region of exporting more food than we import.
