Birds Eye view of Norfolk ??

There was a lot of comment locally this week and last, when BIRDS EYE announced a major decision on their sourcing of peas. (Link to the EDP article)

There was a posting on the local PICKENHAM POSTS blog regarding the decision.

This will not only have an impact on the landscape, but take away a lot of regular contract income for local farmers.

It is also a break in history as the area has been providing peas for freezing for decades.

Following a link to the BIRDS EYE website also led me to their CHANGING PLATES report. (Link leads to PDF download)

This would make a good resource for those looking at cultural change in the UK and the changing importance of families sitting down around a table to eat a meal together...
More on this to come...

Aside from the lack of peas being purchased from Bird's Eye, there's plenty to keep Norfolk on the World Class stage!

Have a look at www.worldclassnorfolk.com for facts, famous Norfolk folk and gallery of Norfolk images.
