Cynhyrchwyr Yn Annog Siopwyr I Ddathlu Dydd Gwyl Dewi Gyda Chynnyrch Cymreig



Fledgling food and drink producers from across South Wales will be enticing shoppers with a selection of artisan products this St David’s Weekend.

Six producers will be taking part in a special food and drink display at McArthur Glen designer outlet in Bridgend (March 1st – 3rd).

With products as diverse as chillies, sea salt, cider, fudge, brownies, and gin, the producers will be offering shoppers a flavour of what’s available on their doorsteps.

Several of the products are making their debut, including vegan sweet treats, sparkling cider, and gin made from….bread!

The producers will be exhibiting under the auspices of Cywain – a Menter a Busnes delivered project that supports the development of growth orientated businesses in the food and drink sector in Wales.

“Not only do all these producers have some fabulous products for shoppers to try and buy, but they have wonderful stories to tell and are passionate about food and drink.

“This is Cywain’s second event at McArthur Glen, and the reaction from shoppers has been terrific. There is a real interest in Welsh food and drink, and we hope St David’s Day will encourage even more people to buy something local.”

Says Lowri Edwards, Cywain development manager.

St David’s Day coincides with the launch of a Cywain social media competition with the winner receiving a hamper of Welsh food and drink.
