As a UK retailer, we’re proud to support British producers. As well as boosting the national economy we’re reducing food transport miles. We’ve built strong relationships through our UK Farmer and Grower Development Groups and are working with these suppliers to develop a more resilient and sustainable British agricultural industry.

“We’ll continue to invest in the future of British farming.”
