The Juice Media's August 22, 2022 satirical video "Honest Government Ad | UK" (please be aware there's racy language; it's Australian satire) includes a presumably real clip of current UK Prime Minister Liz Truss saying the following:

We're producing more varieties of cheese than the French!

After which she paused and smiled for effect, presumably to let the point sink in.

But without context we can't know what the point was. The only clue is the writing on the podium which says:

Securing a Better Future

So I'd like to ask, based on context from her speech once it can be identified and perhaps a transcript found:

Question: What was UK Prime Minister Liz Truss's point when saying "We're producing more varieties of cheese than the French!" in a speech before becoming PM?
