UK - Sutherland House hotel and restaurant at Southwold in Suffolk has been giving back 31 to the pig industry for each Blythburgh Free Range Pork main course it serves.

"We want to do our bit for the British Pigs Are Worth It Campaign, said the hotel. As a result, Jimmy Butler, of Blythburgh Free Range Pork, has been able to make a £251 donation to the campaign.

"Initiatives whereby foodservice outlets ‘adopt’ a farmer are rare but I hope that the work you have been doing with Sutherland House can now be replicated by other businesses as it is one of a number of ways in which the difficulties within our industry can be highlighted to consumers in a positive manner," said BPEX chairman Stewart Houston in a letter of thanks.

Sutherland House head chef Alan Paton recently returned from London with three gold medals for pork-based products using Jimmy Butler's Blythburgh Free Range Pork.
