Kirsty Williams, Welsh Liberal Democrat AM for Brecon and Radnorshire, has welcomed the announcement by the Welsh Government that it will invest £1.5m over the next three years for Hybu Cig Cymru (HCC) to deliver an enhanced export development programme to support the red meat industry in Wales.
The funding is a response to the challenges the industry faces due to the uncertainty of future trading arrangements with Europe post-Brexit. The money will be used to maintain existing export markets and the development of new ones.
Last year the Morrisons Foundation gave around £7.5million to a range of charities last year.
The Morrisons Foundation is the chief recipient of money raised through the sale of carrier bags in store.
