Ethical Food 4 Me
We the undersigned call on Vion Foods to reverse their decision to pay all beef and sheep farmers directly. We request that Vion allows farmers' marketing groups to continue to be paid as a group.
We are concerned that payment direct to all farmers reduces individual farmers' choice in their route to market, and could have damaging consequences for the future of rural communities through accelerated farm amalgamation and resultant depopulation.
This is phase 2 of our campaign. Our initial petition was signed by several hundred people. Please help us increase this number further with our new petition site.
