Rhug Estate Owner, Lord Newborough, announced as Slow Food Cymru’s Person of the Year

Lord Newborough, Owner of Rhug Estate near Corwen, north Wales, has been announced as Slow Food Cymru / Wales’ Person of the Year for creating the first drive thru on a farm in the UK.

Nia Williams, Director of Slow Food Cymru / Wales, nominated Lord Newborough for the unique award. She said, “Rhug’s drive thru is as far from fast food as it can be. We salute the work Lord Newborough has done. He’s looked at the large fast food chains and thought – do you know what – I can’t join them but I can beat them. This fits in completely with the whole ethos of the Slow Food movement. Lord Newborough is Wales’ answer to Carlo Petrini, the founder of Slow Food in Italy.”
