Morrisons to stage 'auditions' for local food producers

13 March 2017

The supermarket launches a search for local producers as researchers urge the UK to become more self-sufficient.

Morrisons supermarket is calling for the UK to become more self-sufficient when it comes to our food supply - and is putting its money where its mouth is by holding 'auditions' for local suppliers.

Research published by the supermarket suggests that only 52% of the food eaten in the UK is sourced from British farmers, despite more than two thirds of shoppers agreeing that they'd prefer to buy British where possible.
