SPONSOR: Natures Way Foods

One of the area's biggest food producers has teamed up with the Observer to sponsor one of our awards categories.

Natures Way Foods (NWF) is a world class prepared fruit and bagged salad manufacturer in West Sussex with factories in Selsey and Runcton.

The company is heavily involved with people across the area, and through its active Community Programme, NWF has created the popular Field to Fork educational tour and built up close relationships with many local schools. School children are regularly invited to visit NWF to learn about how salads are grown and packaged.

The children take away with them an understanding of fresh food, which NWF hopes will encourage them to eat healthily in the future.

The tours are supported by a special website, which can be found at www.field2fork.com which aims to educate children in a fun, interactive way.

NWF is delighted to be sponsoring the Best School category this year and looks forward to meeting the worthy winners.
