Shoppers urged to buy British bacon.
Honiton and Tiverton MP Neil Parish is calling on shoppers to support pig farmers by buying British.
Mr Parish, who is the chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Pigs and Poultry and former farmer, has pledged his support for the Save Our Bacon campaign.
He said: “Unlike most farmers, pig farmers do not receive European Union agricultural subsidies for their produce, so they really do need our help.
“By buying bacon labelled with the Red Tractor logo we can save British bacon for future generations.”
