On 13 October, Sustain’s deputy coordinator Ben Reynolds, and campaign supporter Vanessa Kimbell met with George Eustice, Minister of State at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).
The main topic on the agenda was the Real Bread Campaign's demand for a legal definition for the word sourdough to protect shoppers and support small, independent bakeries that make the genuine article. The meeting was positive and the Campaign is now working to arrange a second meeting with DEFRA early in 2016 to discuss our proposals in more detail.
