Building Sustainable Value

Working to reduce environmental impact, increase sustainability and maintain high ethical standards

From farm to fork

As part of British Food Fortnight, 12 young members of the school council at Springwood Junior School in Waterlooville visited Chalk Stream Farm, a trout farm in Romsey. During the visit, the children:

  • toured the different streams and tanks
  • saw fish being fed
  • learnt about the different stages of fish development
  • saw fish up close and even touched them, before returning them to the water
Love British Food
It was really interesting. I especially liked seeing the different sizes of fish. I have never been anywhere like this before.

I have eaten fish at home and didn’t like it. But I might try it again now
