Supermarkets: Don’t put chlorinated chicken and hormone-pumped beef on your shelves!
Our high food and animal welfare standards are at risk. Products like chlorinated chicken and hormone-pumped beef could be coming to the UK, and end up on our supermarket shelves. These low-quality foods could undercut our hard-working British farmers.
The supermarkets Waitrose, Tesco, Aldi, Co-op, Sainsbury's and ASDA have already come out and said they will never stock chlorinated chicken or hormone-pumped beef in any of their stores. Now the public’s eyes are on you.
As your customers, we're asking if you will also commit to protecting the UK’s high food and animal welfare standards and thriving farming sector, by refusing to stock these products?
Thousands of UK supermarket customers
Although Morrisons has previously committed to making sure that all of their own-brand meat is 100% British sourced, they have taken no new pledges to avoid importing products with lower health and animal welfare standards outside of these ranges in the future.
