Do you buy British?

Many Brits who claim to always buy British fail to put their money where their mouth is in the final analysis, according to a new survey, reports the Press Association.

In a survey of 2000 adults carried on on behalf of bread masters Hovis, nine out of 10 Britons said it is important to buy British produce, but only around one in 20 said they always make sure that they do so.

Most of those who were asked confessed they were unaware of where their food comes from - only one in 10 knowing where the produce on their plates originally comes from.

Celebrity farmer Jimmy Doherty said: ‘It's clear that people don't realise the source of their food.

‘As a farmer myself I know how important it is to invest in British farming - not just for the British economy but also for our fantastic British countryside.’
