Text 15 Feb At last, are we seeing a shift in buyer behaviour?

The shock at the extent of how little we know about what goes into our food and where its come from has become more apparent as the horsemeat scandal continues to unfold

The UK have some of the strictest welfare and movements regulations in the world offering complete traceability from farm to fork, so why has it taken us so long to realise that foreign imports are destroying UK farmers as they can’t compete on price………and now we see why. 

Think before buying at the supermarkets, absolutely everyway possible support your local farmers, butchers and processors  they can probably even tell you the farm where the animals originated

Lets hope the negatives that have emerged from this scandal returns GREAT BRITISH PEOPLE back to GREAT BRITISH PRODUCE, A pride in their local producers, a sense of community building new relationships with local shops, support for their local economies during the downturn and that their local high street is actually as competitive if not more so than the supermarkets.

Vintage market stallsvintage bus rides and shops dressed up for the occasion all add up to the feel of one long retro tea party.
