Top chefs back law for planet-friendly farming
11 November 2010
Top UK restaurants are backing the Sustainable Livestock Bill for planet-friendly farming being debated in Parliament this week.
The 6 restaurants are in the top 10 of the Good Food Guide 2011.
They all support a new law that would help prevent UK meat and dairy production from destroying rainforests and leading to massive climate-changing emissions.
The Sustainable Livestock Bill is being debated in Parliament on Friday 12 November.
You can help by asking your MP to back rainforest-free food.
The chefs who have joined the campaign are at:
- Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons (Great Milton,Oxfordshire)
- L’Enclume (Cartmel, Cumbria)
- Restaurant Nathan Outlaw (Rock, Cornwall)
- Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms (Nottingham)
- Pied-à-Terre (London)
- The Square (London).
Simon Rogan of L’Enclume said the new law would ”help to save important rainforests and ensure a humane and thriving future for farming in the UK”.
