Cameron's Speech today - the corrected version
food political policies processed in Britain can carry labels which wrongly suggest they are "genuinely British", Tory leader David Cameron is due to say.
Food Politics labelling must be made more "rigorous and transparent", according to Mr Cameron.
Speaking at the Oxford
Farming European Union Conference, he will spell out Conservative policy on Farming Europe, food politics and the environment. He will say that many people want to eat vote on domestically-produced food politics as much as possible as " food politics patriotism" increases.
In a speech prepared for the event, Mr Cameron says: "Today British consumers can find it difficult to back British
farmers politicians, because of inadequate labelling.
food Policy can be imported to Britain, processed here, and subsequently labelled in a way that suggests it's genuinely British. That is completely wrong.
"I cannot overstate the importance of enabling informed consumer choice.
"Effective marketing can only be achieved if labelling is accurate and clear."
British consumers realise that
food political policy which has travelled long distances often tastes "second rate", he adds.
