l Lancashire tea is now available thanks to tea industry experts Paul Needham and Lynne Hitchen. The pair, who are native Lancastrians, have given Lancashire its very own brand of tea. Paul says: "Lancashire and Yorkshire rivalry dates back to the Wars of the Roses and we decided it was time for Lancashire to follow in Yorkshire's footsteps with its own tea. We have the knowledge and expertise to give the British tea-drinking public the perfect cuppa." Lynn added: "We wanted to give Lancastrians their very own branded, superior-quality tea. Our Lancashire tea is

made from the finest leaves and infuses instantly to produce a bright golden liquor and a smooth subtle taste." She said that the new brew

is proving a hit in pubs, including Thwaites, restaurants and hotels

across Lancashire.

l Bernard Matthews Food Service has launched new lamb meatballs made from New Zealand lamb mince and produced a new healthier version of its turkey meatballs in response to demand for healthier products. The lamb meatballs contain less than 185mg of sodium and 7g of fat per 50g oven-baked serving. Bernard Matthews suggests they are served with mint gravy, new potatoes and seasonal vegetables, as an ingredient in a casserole, as a base for a spiced Moroccan dish or in wholemeal pitta bread with salad and a low-fat mint and yoghurt dressing. The new healthier recipe for the big-selling turkey meatballs has a reduced fat content of just 7g per 100g when oven-baked and a sodium content of less than 400mg per 100g.
