Cornwall Council's food motion welcomed by farmers
Members of the farming community have welcomed a council motion to serve locally sourced food at meetings.
The Cornwall Council motion means meat, dairy and vegetarian options will be sourced from county suppliers.
The inclusion of meat bucks a trend in other councils toward plant-based food, with Exeter City Council's policy courting controversy with farmers.
At the Royal Cornwall Show, Kate Martin of Treway Farm in St Austell said the move was "amazing".
She added: "They are really bucking the trend from councils across the UK that are really moving towards a plant-based diet for their workers and meetings.
