Buy local and support British farmers

By buying British grown and reared food we support our farmers and it is the best way to ensure food security. Currently the UK imports 60% of what we eat, as consumers we can prefer UK producers by choosing local suppliers, red tractor labelled products, and produce with a union jack on the packaging. Using innovative agricultural advances like salad grown in vertical farming, the UK could produce all the salad it needs, rather than importing it. This will reduce how much food is imported, increasing the sustainability of the food since it travels less miles. Supporting our farmers makes sense, for all of us. To achieve net zero, how we buy and eat really matters.
