Marks & Spencer is ramping up its commitment to local sourcing by developing a closer relationship with Cornish fishermen.

Six Cornish fishermen, representatives of Seafood Cornwall, traded in their sea boots for white hats during a visit to Marks & Spencer's food hall in Truro, Cornwall.

The event was linked to Seafish's new Responsible Fishing Scheme and the three-year Invest in Fish South West project, of which Marks & Spencer is a sponsoring partner.

M&S is marketing Cornish specialities such as pollock and sardines, labelled as product of Cornwall.
