Not for the first time, I look across at France and wish our Governments would undertake some of the actions that the French are prepared to do to back their farmers and their food industry.  The French Government has shown some mettle and are going to force companies to introduce mandatory country of origin labelling for milk and meat in processed foods.

CEO's Blog 26 July 2016

Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland's first minister in a speech on Monday 25 July outlined the key interests she believes must be protected in attempting to secure Scotland's position in Europe.  Amongst the points she said was that "safeguarding free movement of labour, access to a single market of 500 million people and the funding that our farmers depend on" are key issues that need to be protected in attempting to secure Scotland’s position in Europe.  These points align nicely with the commitments we set out for government to take forward as a result of the Bre
