January 7, 2014 9:17 am

Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has called on consumers to buy British fruit and vegetables to help boost the rural economy. In a speech to the Oxford Farming Conference Paterson said that UK imports 24% of its food in spite of the availability of “top-class” British produce. He will also say it is up to farmers, manufacturers and the Government to “take action” to address the issue.
