Blog: Prince Charles knows his onions

Catherine Sleep | 1 November 2004

I once heard Prince Charles speak, at the launch of a Business in the Community project on local sourcing. I was impressed at the depth of his knowledge of the issues that face farmers, retailers and shoppers and by his apparent fervour.

He recently spoke at the Slow Food Salone del Gusto in Turin, Italy, and again he conveyed his knowledge of agriculture and the issues surrounding sustainable food production. You can see his speech by following the hyperlink below. Given that Charles could be King one day, it is promising that he knows so much about the industry we work in.
