Poultry & Game:

Here at GPF, we are all about sustainable eating. Whether you are vegan or carnivorous, we can all be striving to buy our produce from local, sustainable sources. If you are buying meat this season look for the little red tractor on the packaging to ensure it is British Farm assured, meaning it is ‘traceable, safe and farmed with care because [their] inspectors check every step of the food journey from farm to pack.’

Seafood:

The same goes for fish eaters, make sure the fish and crustaceans you are buying have the sustainability fish logo on it, from the Marine Stewardship Council. There may be plenty of fish in your sea of romantic candidates but we have to be fair in sharing our fishes of the oceans!
