Make food production local, urges Green Party

Have your say

The discovery of pig and horse meat in supermarket beef burgers is “scandalous but sadly unsurprising”, according to Caroline Allen, Green Party Animal Welfare spokesperson.

Caroline said: “The relentless rise of food prices – including feed price for animals – means that processors will have to be increasingly inventive to continue to provide the cheap food that supermarkets require.

“We need to relocalise the food chain, reducing waste, improving traceability and supporting our farmers – creating a system of food production with resilience in the face of the challenges of a changing climate.”
