Low-carbon methods offer UK farmers export opportunities

As pressure intensifies on consumers to change their eating habits for environmental reasons, UK farmers could benefit from new opportunities to export to countries producing food with inferior green credentials.

Cambridgeshire arable grower Tom Clarke believes UK farmers have nothing to fear from campaigns seeking to convince people to eat food that is seen as better for the climate and nature.

A key message to governments from the webinar participants was that farm policy needed to support farmers to make the changes expected of them.

Liz Bowles, of the Soil Association, urged farmers to “stand on the shoulders of giants” and follow the lead of others who had already taken steps to reduce the impact of their businesses on the climate and nature.
