Celebrating traceable, safe food that is farmed with care

Added 10 Sep 2018

Red Tractor Week 2018 (10th – 16th September) will celebrate traceable, safe food that is farmed with care.

Red Tractor is a world leading farm and food assurance scheme that provides traceable, safe to eat food for UK consumers.  The Red Tractor logo can be found on millions of food items sold in supermarkets and restaurants across the country.  It’s an easy signpost for consumers looking for food and drink that they can trust.

Red Tractor CEO, Jim Moseley says; “We know that an increasing number of consumers are concerned about where their food has come from and how it has been produced.  We want to remind everyone that we do the checks so that you don’t have to. Our Red Tractor team takes pride in bringing people the traceable, safe, quality food that they deserve. You can Trust The Tractor.”

“Every working day in the UK, independent inspectors conduct more than 230 in-depth inspections, that’s more than 60,000 each year. The vast majority of farmers do an outstanding job that is recognised around the world for excellence.”

Moseley added; “The UK and Red Tractor have some of the most comprehensive and robust farming and food standards in the world.  It is of critical importance that government understand this and the value that Red Tractor can bring to the future of British food and farming.”

For consumers, it is easy to take part in Red Tractor Week. Simply cook along at home, choose products from your supermarket that carry the Red Tractor logo, and post photos of the food you are cooking on social media. During the week you will be seeing lots more of Red Tractor.

We will be launching a Facebook Filter for farmers and consumers to show their support of British Farming. People can take part via social media on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook and on the Red Tractor website (www.redtractor.org.uk);
