New Forest Marque
The New Forest Marque is a recognised sign and is easily identifiable; the New Forest Marque ensures that all the produce labelled with the marque is from the New Forest.
In order to qualify for the marque, the New Forest producers have to ensure they make their goods to the stringent quality standards outlined by the Marque. Meat producers for example must show a very high standard of animal welfare and good animal husbandry has to be applied at all times, this helps to ensure the best quality local produce is provided.
Due to the soaring success of the New Forest Marque, the New Forest Breakfast was created by top chefs that worked within the New Forest. The New Forest Marque has proved to be a huge hit with the New Forest breakfast and veggie breakfast being sold across the national park. The New Forest Breakfast is made up of at least three items of New Forest Marque produce, which helps guarantee that your hearty breakfast is of the finest quality.
During your visit to the forest you may wish to sample the delicious and top quality produce provided by the area, keep an eye out for the New Forest Marque when you are shopping or dining out.
