Tesco has honoured three suppliers with long service awards.
Mike and Ede Baker of Premier Vegetables, Alan Clements of T H Clements and Sons and Terry Smith of TA Smith all received awards for more than 20 years' collaboration from Tesco's commercial director, Colin Smith, at the Royal Show.
Roy Maynard, senior buying manager, said: "These are producers who started out as small family-owned businesses supplying Tesco with a few pallets of produce. Twenty years later, they have grown to be major suppliers of quality British produce and these awards are a recognition of these long partnerships."
Meanwhile, two Scottish farmers were also honoured for the quality of their potatoes and their environmentally sensitive farming practices. Russell Gall of Aberdeenshire took the top prize, with John Lang of Fife finishing as runner up.
