The population of Great Britain is growing rapidly with the country experiencing the biggest baby boom in 40 years.
British food supplies would have run out on August 14 if all the food produced in Britain in a year was stored and eaten from January 1 onwards.
But our farmers are determined to reverse this trend and produce enough food for the needs of generations to come – but the farmers need politicians, supermarkets, retailers, food processors, restaurants and cafes to play their part to let them do their job.
The National Farmers’ Union have created a charter calling for a commitment to put British farming at the heart of the challenge of feeding us all in the future – and they need YOUR support!
You can read more about the charter on the NFU’s Back British Farming charter explained page.
