The three MP's invited food and drink producers from their constituencies to exhibit their produce. The idea was to allow fellow Parliamentarians to see the range of produce on offer, while also encouraging people from across the UK to think about the Chilterns and Aylesbury Vale as a great place to visit.
Four companies visited from the Aylesbury constituency. These were:
Aylesbury Escargots, a snail farm in Abbey Road, Aylesbury; Beechdean Farmhouse Dairy Ice Cream of Old House Farm, North Dean; Number 2 Pound Street, a Wendover delicatessen; and Rumsey’s Chocolates, at the Old Bank, High Street, Wendover.
David Lidington MP said:“It was very good to welcome local food businesses to Westminster for the Chilterns and Aylesbury Vale Food Day at the House of Commons. The wide range of goods being promoted showcased the wonderful food and drink available in Buckinghamshire and several hundred people came long to sample them.
“Buckinghamshire produces some of the best food in the country. It was good to be able to share that secret with so many colleagues this week.”
