OLMC supports ‘Get Fair About Farming’

Get Fair About Farming

This cutting, taken from The Farmer, reports on an open letter sent to Tesco, Sainsburys Asda, Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl urging them to treat suppliers more fairly. Over 100 signatories include the the Soil Association, Rick Stein and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

It reads, “Farmers are denied commitment or security – with whole crops rejected at the last minute in favour of cheaper options elsewhere, or just because supermarkets change their mind….these practices threated the livelihoods of hard-working farmers, and jeopardise the availability of fresh, healthy, and locally grown food for shoppers.”
