Nikki supports British cheeses in Strasbourg

Nikki Sinclaire MEP today gave her support to the £5.6 Billion British cheese industry in Strasbourg.

In 2009 the Sunday Telegraph reported that the UK imported 136,938 tonnes of cheddar the previous year , mostly from Latvia– a record amount equivalent to about half a billion 250g packs.

This is why Nikki  strongly supports the British Cheese Board’s “Check Your Cheddar” campaign, urgeing the British public to check the label of supermarket Cheddar to see where the cheese came from.If it didn’t say it was British then the odds were that it wasn’t!

In the UK we have 700 differently named cheeses that are packed with essential vitimins such as B12 that help produce red blood cells.
