Dan is a great supporter of our local farmers and food and drink producers in Suffolk, who play a vital role in our local economy and in our communities. He was delighted to visit White’s Farm, home of James White Drinks, which produces a wide range of freshly pressed fruit juices. Dan was given a tour of the facilities and the allotments by General Manager James Mwayi and saw how the juices are pressed and bottled, before stopping to talk to some of the company’s employees.
James White Drinks has been based in Suffolk for over 22 years and started as a small cider maker, before moving into the production of fresh apple juices. The company has won numerous awards and now sells its juices across the world. Its beetroot juice has gained much media attention, and was even used by the UK , Irish, Australian , Canadian and Belgian Olympic teams last year.
Suffolk rightly has an excellent reputation for its locally produced food and drink and Dan knows that people in Suffolk value the opportunity to support local producers by purchasing food and drink that is from their local area. Dan will continue to be a strong voice for Suffolk’s farmers and food producers and he would like to thank Managing Director Lawrence Mallinson for inviting him to visit.

I know she...
