Supermarkets challenged to do more to support British farmers

Supermarket responses

At the start of 2013 we launched an action for our supporters that asked supermarkets what they were doing to support local food and farming on three issues:

  • promote and expand the range of products for sale that are grown in ways that enhance the character of our landscapes and that help wildlife to thrive;
  • make sure they treated their suppliers fairly and to pay British farmers and producers a fair price that takes into account the cost of production;
  • set and meet demanding targets for stocking local food. In our Vision for the Future of Farming CPRE suggests 10% of food sold in a supermarket should be sourced within 30 miles.

These are their responses.
