Pembrokeshire Produce Mark
Whether you’re eating out or shopping locally, look out for the Pembrokeshire Produce Mark.
The Produce Mark is an instantly recognisable logo, which shows that the product you are buying has been made in Pembrokeshire.
If displayed in a hospitality establishment, it shows that local produce is used within the menu. Retail outlets displaying the Produce Mark sell local products within their shop.
There are currently over 280 members of the Pembrokeshire Produce Mark scheme. Before being able to display the logo, all members of the scheme are verified to ensure eligibility.
The Pembrokeshire Produce Mark is an instantly recognisable mark that will tell your customers that your products are produced in Pembrokeshire, that you use local ingredients within your menus or that you sell local products within your retail outlet.
Customer research shows that people do want to buy Pembrokeshire Produce, but the lack of a distinctive mark of origin is confusing in their choice.
The Pembrokeshire Produce mark will provide a clear identity, give customers the assurance that they are buying local products or that local products are used by hospitality and retail businesses.
- 'I would really like to buy local produce but how can I be sure it was actually produced in Pembrokeshire?'
