Fresh produce suppliers Greenvale, Gs Produce and Berryworld are among the suppliers partnering Tesco's new nationwide programme to educate schoolchildren on where food comes from, which starts next month.

Supported by the NFU, Diabetes UK and the Children's Food Trust, Farm to Fork aims to engage every primary school in the UK, with visits to factories, farms and supermarkets, and practical demonstrations of where food comes from and how it is made.

It aims to take one million of the UK's five million primary school children on visits in the project's first year, while they will also have the opportunity to talk to food suppliers around the world using live video chats.

Farm to Fork forms part of the supermarket's the Eat Happy Project, to which it has pledged £15 million in its first year.
