The desire to know exactly where your food is coming from has never been more prominent, and the demand for local meat is growing, but with limited Isle of Wight meat available it took considerable effort to ensure supply met customer demand. With that in mind, we are proud to have developed a tremendous working relationship over the last year with island farmers Richard Salter and Sue Harbour in Bembridge.
This collaboration has been in the making since the beginning of 2019 and now sees a quality range of true Isle of Wight born and bred, Red Tractor Scheme assured Steyne Farm beef being available exclusively to Medina Foodservice.
On Thursday Medina Foodservice were delighted to support the award for Emergency Services at the Local Heroes event hosted by Isle of Wight Radio.
The glitzy ceremony gives people a chance to show their appreciation by nominating the unsung heroes of the Island. Categories cover everything from sports person, fundraiser and tourism ambassador to volunteers, carers and inspirational leader.
On the night, the award for the Medina Foodservice Emergency Service Local Hero went to the incredible team at Wight SAR (Search and Rescue). Wight SAR provide skilled volunteers to assist Hampshire Constabulary and other agencies in searches for vulnerable missing persons on the Isle of Wight and rely on donations from the public and support from sponsors to fund their team.
What makes this award even more special is that our Managing Director, Steve Ross, actually got to present it to one of our colleagues, Chris Jeffrey, who has assisted Wight SAR in their work for a considerable number of years.
That’s right, we have heroes working here!
