** Campaign update **

Unfortunately despite this Bill having strong support from MPs of all parties thanks to the lobbying of them done by our supporters, opposition by a small minority of MPs ensured that the Bill didn't get through to the next stage. This is a big disapointment to us but we will try again.

The meat and the dairy industry produces more climate-changing emissions than every plane, train and car on the planet. The food chain links factory farms in the UK to the rainforests of South America where huge soy plantations are wiping out wildlife and making climate change worse.

Food and farming in the UK faces a stark choice. Do we continue to put profit first? Or adopt practices that safeguard the future of what we eat and those who provide it.

If we let them the Government, biotech industry and supermarkets will decide for us. It's time to put your foot down.
