Supermarket Backs British Farming Campaign03 October 2013
UK - UK supermarket group Morrisons has thrown its support behind teh National Farmers' Union Back British Farming Charter.
The charter was launched in August to put more British food on British plates, after it emerged that the UK now produces just 62 per cent of its food.
It calls on the public, politicians, retailers and the food industry to pull together and produce, source and consume more home-grown produce.
NFU is currently touring the country with a special Ad Van vehicle to get the message across, on a whistle-stop tour which began on Monday outside the Conservative Party Conference.
NFU North East director Richard Pearson said: "Morrisons has been a long-term supporter of UK agriculture and it is important to recognise their contributions and commitment to supporting the Red Tractor mark across their products.
"Just recently they have stepped up their commitment to British beef producers and their involvement today is further proof of their determination to work in partnership with ourfarmers and growers."
