Jamie Oliver Saves Our Bacon
Following his great television programme highlighting the importance of supporting British pig farmers and British pork, Jamie has set up a dedicated website asking people to pledge their support for the pig industry.
Jamie says:

"Britain has some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world where pig farming is concerned. But lower standards of animal welfare in some European countries mean those countries can pump out cheaper meat, which is why pork from the EU is undercutting ours. If we aren’t careful, our British farmers will be driven out of the market completely and British pork will be something we tell our grandkids about."

Love Food Hate Waste Campaign
Most of us don't realise the amount of food we throw away. Over a third of food we buy in Scotland is thrown directly in the bin and at least half of this could have been eaten. Love Food Hate Waste aims to reduce this figure by showing people how they can cut down on their own wastage. One of the simple ways to help cut down on waste is to buy fresh, local, high quality produce. You can choose the quantity that you buy, you know it's going to taste delicious and the bonus is that you know exactly where it has come from. The Love Food Hate Waste campaign website includes some great recipe ideas as well as other ideas on how to cut waste.
