“With over 12.6k entries, and only 37% of entries accredited, a win is a great achievement and testament to the hard work invested by both Asda and its suppliers.
“I look forward to them building on this success in the years ahead, and also watching new and existing suppliers work towards accreditation in the future – with Asda helping and guiding them as they continue to produce the highest quality of local produce.”
