Farm leaders discuss supermarket pledges

NFU leaders met Tesco representatives to discuss the supermarket’s commitments to “source closer to home” and build partnerships with British farmers.

The meeting followed a pledge earlier this year by Tesco chief executive Philip Clarke who promised to make ‘real changes to the way Tesco source’ food in the wake of the scandal which saw the retailer’s economy burgers contaminated with up to 29% horsemeat.

NFU president Peter Kendall welcomed the sentiment of Tesco’s announcement, saying he was reassured that the UK farming industry’s biggest customer recognised the important role that farmers played in delivering quality food for their consumers.

Mr Kendall said: “We recognise the significance of Tesco’s commitments and will be working closely with its team to ensure that the retailer‚’s sentiments and latest commitments deliver real value to the sustainability of the UK farming industry.

“What we want to see is measurable changes on sourcing, longer term commitments and improved relationships. The meeting was a first step in working towards these goals and it showed clear signs that Tesco wants to build partnerships. There is a lot of work to be done and the NFU will be working to help Tesco deliver.”
