Drinkwaters Mushrooms were in full flow at the Conservative Party Conference this week and rubbing shoulders with some high profile figures. It was the first time Drinkwaters have been involved in such an event.
Baroness Sayeeda Warsi dropped in on the team and was very impressed with the quality of their mushrooms. As co-Chairman of the Conservative Party, Baroness Warsi took the time to come and sample some freshly picked mushrooms as part of close to 1000 samples produced for dignitaries and delegates.
Lancaster and Fleetwood MP Eric Ollerenshaw was also pleased to visit the Drinkwaters Mushrooms team and was kind enough to meet with General Manager Neil Morris. “It is a really crucial time for our business”, said Morris, “We are currently looking to expand our premises in Galgate and are working very hard on renewable energy projects”
Technical Manager Jane Drinkwater got the chance to stress that the business is still family run and owned after over 40 years of production. “It was fantastic to meet so many people who share our passion for locally grown, British produce.”
