Get picky about your pork

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

Bri­tain’s pig-wel­fare stan­dards are un­doubt­edly among the world’s high­est and the Rare Breeds Sur­vival Trust is call­ing for shop­pers to ques­tion the prove­nance of pork and to buy Bri­tish, fol­low­ing the news that most na­tive breeds are de­clin­ing (Town & Coun­try, April

12). ‘Breed­ers must have a mar­ket for their pro­duce; we need more peo­ple to buy na­tive-breed pork and to make sure it’s the real thing,’ says chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Tom Bee­ston. ‘When some­one has tasted gen­uine pedi­gree pork, you get com­ments such as “it tastes like pork used to taste”. We need more shop­pers ask­ing their butch­ers to make sure they’re get­ting pedi­gree na­tive-breed meat.’
