Members of the public are being sought to take part in a discussion to introduce a food label for Manx produce.

The Government wants to bring in a food provenance label for the Isle of Man, which would indicate that an item has been grown, reared, caught or processed on the Island, or contains mostly Manx ingredients.

After six months of research, the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture want to hold consumer focus groups to hear what the public think about the idea.

The focus groups will take place at NOA Bakehouse in Douglas on the 7th and 8th of November - anyone interested in taking part should email food@gov.im.

It's hoped the label, which is currently expected to launch next year, would help shoppers instantly identify Manx produce.
