Jamie Oliver’s new Channel 4 programme, Jamie Saves Our Bacon, will be screened this evening, and is aimed at raising pig welfare.
It follows the RSPCA’s launch of its ‘Rooting for Pigs’ campaign, which calls for clear and consistent labelling on pork products and better laws to protect pig welfare.
The Good Food Guide supports the RSPCA’s aims. We all have a right to know where the food we eat comes from and the definitions used to label pork should be clear to all of us.
When eating out at restaurants, don’t be afraid to ask where ingredients are from and support restaurants that use local, seasonal produce.
Here are a few restaurants from The Good Food Guide 2009 that champion local produce.
