Editor, Mike Lowe commented: “We were delighted to welcome as our special guest, HRH The Princess Royal, a Gloucestershire farmer in her own right. I see her decision to fit this event into her hectic schedule as a validation of the food and drink industry in this region, and of the importance of these awards.
