Britain’s largest trade delegation ever to visit China is currently taking place, with over 100 business leaders accompanying the Prime Minister and senior officials ; hoping to foster greater trade links with the world’s second largest economy.
We have two Devon businesses as part of this delegation : Westaways Sausages based in Newton Abbot, and Aston Manor Cider from Tiverton . The Economy and Enterprise service at Devon County Council are looking forward to the outcome of this mission with excitement, and are sure these two companies will receive a warm reception from Chinese markets, where there is ever increasing demand for high quality western foodstuffs.
