Now Our Supermarkets Sell Christmas Turkeys From Brazil
The Daily Mail has once again highlighted the plight of the British Farmer. This time it is our Christmas Turkeys, being imported frozen from Brazil. Farmers have reacted (quite rightly) with fury after the shameful betrayal of British agriculture by Asda emerged. They complain that it is a huge waste of energy to buy, freeze and ship thousands of turkeys from 6000 miles
Charles Bourns, Chairman of the National Farmers’ Union poultry committee, described Asda’s decision as “shameful”. It is the latest blow for British turkey producers, who have not had the support they need from the big supermarkets over many years. British turkey production has reduced from around 49 million birds a year ten years ago to about 17 million today.
If Follows Plums and Cheese
This follows my 2 previous blogs earlier this year – the first about Sainsbury’s importing plums, whilst beautiful British Victoria plums rotted in our own orchards and the second about the scandalous importation of large blocks of European cheddar being imported, chopped up and labelled as “packaged in Britain” and accompanied by the Union Jack.
Buying British is Important
Britain needs to make enormous efforts to revive
British Skincare Traditions
For similar reasons, it is just as important to buy Yin Yang, an entirely British beauty routine because it is good quality, supports our own heritage, comes without a cost to the environment and IT WORKS. For almost 40 years Yin Yang has been the first choice of many loyal customers who tell us that it is an integral part of their healthy regime. This consumer appreciation is the best encouragement for any producer, so let us give our support to as many British farmers and manufacturers as we can. Let us be proud of our traditions and heritage to secure a good future for us all.
