'Fix the Food Chain' appeals for support
HOWFOE the local group for Friends of Earth, are backing the National campaign 'Fix the food chain': HOWFOE says
‘The government holds the key to planet -friendly farming. Factory farming of meat and dairy is helping push the planet to the brink of runaway climate change as forests are being cleared to grow soy for animal feed.
Meat and dairy farming can deliver planet-friendly food but to do so farmers need to be supported to move away from imported feeds so that thy can graze their animals and feed them home grown diets. They also need to be protected from supermarket bullying. Please help fix the food chain by removing the barriers to thriving and sustainable UK farming.’
Local FoE organiser Janine Wilbraham informs us that ‘the group has postcards to send to Friends of the Earth head office in support of the campaign; this helps add your support for a new law to measure and reduce the global environmental impacts of the UK's meat and dairy consumption by signing parliamentary motion EDM 194.’
