Julie Monkman, manager of Produced in Kent, said: Not only are these entrepreneurs growing, producing or working with local ingredients, but they are helping to revive and maintain traditional Kentish food and drink and centuries-old production methods, but with a razor-sharp, 21st-century cutting edge!
