Given the huge potential that major retailers have to Back British Farming, we’re asking them to:
 

  • Be clear and transparent about how they source British products. This should be underpinned with fair relationships across the whole supply chain

  • Clearly label British food using a Red Tractor logo or British flag so that customers can easily see where products are sourced from

  • Commit to fair, mutually beneficial and transparent relationships with farmers and growers, specifically signing the Back British Farming Charter and NFU Fruit and Veg pledge
