The UK continues to import large quantities of Lamb to stock supermarket shelves, primarily from New Zealand. By backing British Farmers and shopping locally, you are helping to cut down on processing, packaging and transportation waste, leading to less pollution, by supporting local, you are contributing to a smaller carbon footprint.
The British Isles are supremely well suited to raising livestock. Lots of rainfall means lots of grass, plus we’ve got plenty of uplands that aren’t good for much else (except lovely country walks of course). This means British cattle require less inputs such as feeds and water compared to feedlot cattle. Less inputs translates to less carbon emissions: in fact, the British average is 50% less than the global average.
