As producers of the most consumed meat in Britain, we recognise the importance of all people having access to safe, affordable, and nutritious food.
British food producers have worked hard to build a food system that ensures world-leading standards.
It is vital that we serve high quality food within the public sector to support British farmers, British food producers, British businesses, and British standards.
