More protection for Cornish farmers.

Westcountry beef and lamb is joining Cornish clotted cream and pasties by having the name protected.

It will mean only animals reared here can be given the label.

Farming Minister and Camborne and Redruth MP George Eustice explained why it can help food producers: "This process that we have of designating and protecting some of those regional processes for either cooking special recipes or indeed protecting the status of a geographic location of food production is really important and it helps the consumer get what they actually want.

"This protected name status process that we have contributes about nine million pounds to the economy so it does boost the economy by helping consumers they need and by helping to expand the market for some of these niche products."
