Celebrating Lincoln’s Fairtrade city status

00:00 /

On this week’s episode of Food for Thought I’ve been finding out about Lincoln’s Fairtrade city status. This means Lincoln as a city now supports fairtrade goods and products and to find out more about the work that went into gaining this status I spoke to Adam Gardner from the Fairtrade Foundation.

Meanwhile Samantha Pidoux has been chatting to Lymn Bank Farm about their array of flavoured cheeses including the Skegness Blue.

You can listen to the show or download the podcast below.

This included showing that local shops and cafes sell fairtrade products as well as explaining and promoting the importance of fairtrade.

The Fairtrade Town programme was set up by the Fairtrade Foundation. Adam Gardner is the Communities Campaigns Manager for the Fairtrade Foundation and he explains to Food for Thought the work that goes into getting the status. Make sure to listen to this week’s podcast to hear the interview with Adam.

Also on this week’s show Samantha Pidoux speaks to Gemma Sissen from Lymn Bank Farm. They make a range of flavoured cheeses and they have started making a range of local artisan cheeses. Recently Samantha has tried out some of their cheeses and come up with a recipe for hot and spicy cheese scones, so make sure to read that over on Samantha’s blog too.

Food for Thought is on Siren FM every Wednesday at 2pm, and repeated on Saturday at 3pm.
