Tesco today announced it would be sourcing more meat from UK producers, as supermarkets came under pressure to sell more British food in the wake of the horsemeat scandal.
The supermarket giant's chief executive Philip Clarke told the National Farmers' Union annual conference:
Where it is reasonable to do so, we will source from British producers.
As a first step I announce that from July all of our fresh chicken must come from UK farmers. No exceptions.
And we will move over time to make sure all our chicken in all our products, fresh or frozen, is from the British Isles.
