The race to the bottom pricing we have experienced in food retail is not sustainable for farmers and food producers, and international trade deals opening up the UK to cheap imports will compound the issue.
The Food Price Wars RED Talk discusses how business can profit in a challenging climate, the importance of fair margins and how we educate the public to value food. This talk looks at how to create a thriving farming industry, supported by government, the business community and consumers who understand its value to our health, economy and culture’
