The head of the National Farmers' Union (NFU) has said farmers are "furious" about the horsemeat scandal.
Peter Kendall said that shorter supply chains and better labelling of British meat would help prevent a repeat.
He added: "Our research also demonstrates the strong demand for British-farmed products, and so retailers, processors and food service companies have a responsibility to ensure there is clear country of origin labelling on the products that consumers purchase."
The horsemeat scandal, the row over milk prices and the crop crisis will be on the agenda at the National Farmers' Union conference in Birmingham today.
The Tesco CEO Philip Clarke will tell the conference he wants to buy more meat from the UK after horsemeat was found in some of the supermarket's own brand beef products.
The Environment Secretary Owen Paterson will also be there to speak to concerned farmers from across the country.
They're worried about government funding, the effects of poor weather and rising feed costs.
More than 1000 farmers are expected at the event which is on at the International Convention Centre for the next two days.
Tesco has announced three measures designed to ensure that another horsemeat scandal does not happen.
Three products were withdrawn from the supermarket chain after one brand of burger was found to contain as much as 30% horsemeat in DNA tests. The measures are as follows:
- Import less meat from overseas
- Develop closer relationships with suppliers in the UK
- A new internal testing regime
Initial tests on school meals in Worcestershire have found no traces of horsemeat.
The county council's specialist scientific services have been checking meals meet the required standard.
The scandal has resulted in a number of products being taken off supermarket shelves after they were found to be contaminated. The council says it will have the full results of the samples tested next week.
Butchers in the Midlands say there's been a surge in trade amid the ongoing supermarket horsemeat scandal.
Butchers inside Leicester's indoor market say they've seen sales up by 30 per cent, as customers want to know where their meat is coming from.
Having removed beef from the menu in the 350 schools in Staffordshire the council has said that they do expect to be serving beef after half term, which is next week:
Staffordshire County Council has announced it is removing beef from its school menus as a "precautionary measure" in light of the horsemeat scandal.
