Produce

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.

What is the 'Pembrokeshire Produce Mark'?

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.


What are your customers asking?

  • 'I would really like to buy local produce but how can I be sure it was actually produced in Pembrokeshire?'
  • 'What dishes on your menu are made from local ingredients?'
  • I would like to take home something from Pembrokeshire, but where do I buy local products?'

Joining the Pembrokeshire Produce Mark scheme will help answer these questions.

What are the benefits of membership?

  • The potential to attract more customers to your business
  • The opportunity to become involved in co-operative marketing initiatives that seek to increase usage of Pembrokeshire products
  • The opportunity to participate in exhibitions and events both within and outside Pembrokeshire
  • New business opportunities through networking and business marketing
  • Free artwork of the Pembrokeshire Produce Mark
  • Free window vinyl, point-of-sale material and customer charter to display at your premises, explaining the purpose of the Pembrokeshire Produce Mark
  • The opportunity to purchase specialised branded merchandise.

What are the membership costs?

Membership is currently free of charge.


How will the scheme be managed?

The Pembrokeshire Produce mark has been developed as part of pembrokeshire County Council's Initiatives. The governing body of the scheme will therefore be Pembrokeshire County Council who will be responsible for processing applications, managing the scheme and working with members to promote the Pembrokeshire Produce Mark.

  • the hospitality establishments displaying the logo use local produce within their menus or

Before being able to display the Produce Mark, all members of the scheme are verified to ensure eligibility.

Pembrokeshire County Council's food officer, Joanne Welch, said she had received feedback from many visitors saying how much the Produce Mark had contributed to their holiday in the County.

"They had eaten local produce throughout their stay by targeting catering and retail outlets bearing the Mark and buying products that displayed the logo" she explained.

"Of course, there is also the loyalty aspect of buying local produce. It has created a brand for people in the county who prefer to support local producers."

There are 280 Pembrokeshire Produce Mark Members.

What is the purpose of a farmers market?

A farmers market is a place where you are guaranteed to find fresh local food and by supporting your local producers and farmers you are helping to ensure their future, support the local economy and also reduce food-miles.

 

Why buy at a farmers market?

All food at a farmers market is fresh and sold by the producer who has grown, reared, picked or produced the product, so you can ask questions about the produce you are buying

 

Is food cheaper at a farmers market?

It may not necessarily be cheaper, but you are definitely guaranteed good, fresh quality products which are worth the cost

 

What about food hygiene standards at a farmers market?

All stallholders are registered with their local Council and markets are regularly inspected as they have to comply with the same high standard of hygiene as any other food retailer.
