Red Tractor Mark

EDM number 496 in 2007-08, proposed by Lindsay Hoyle on 06/12/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Agriculture, Farmers and Food.

That this House notes the success of the Red Tractor Week logo in drawing attention to the quality of UK-produced food; congratulates Assured Food Standards, the independent organisation set up to manage the Red Tractor mark, which represents the interests of each of the key links, including the National Farmers' Union, the Ulster Farmers' Union, the Meat and Livestock Commission, Dairy UK and the British Retail Consortium, and the Food and Drink Federation and which liaises with the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; recognises that the scheme helps shoppers easily to find UK-produced fresh food and allows producers to use a distinctive logo on packs of foods which meet its strict criteria covering animal welfare, food transport and packing; and calls on the Government to work in close alliance with farmers, processors and retailers to promote British produce and support UK farming.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
