Kendamil supports Jamie Oliver campaign to maintain British Food Standards
Our kids will be the most vulnerable if our markets are flooded with unhealthy foods high in fat, salt and sugar. We need to put our children’s health first. Right now, more than ever, we need our kids to grow up strong and healthy, ready to face whatever life throws at them.
– An extract from Jamie Oliver’s letter to the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
Jamie Oliver’s Campaign to Maintain British Food Standards
Earlier this week, you may have read Jamie Oliver’s passionate open letter to the Prime Minister, calling upon the Government to protect British farms, farmers and food producers in future trade deals and maintain British food standards here in the UK.
A petition has been launched by the National Farmers’ Union which urges Government to commit in law that food that would be illegal to produce here in the UK, should not be imported as part of future trade deals.
Kendamil are proud to support Jamie Oliver and the National Farmers’ Union’s campaign to support British food safety, traceability, animal welfare and environmental standards.
Why are Kendamil supporting this campaign?
British food safety standards are among the highest in the world. As Britain’s only infant formula, we treasure our organic, grass-fed dairy from local family farms across our all-British supply chain.
Unfortunately, despite having some of the finest fresh dairy in the world here on our shores, over 99% of all infant formula sold in the U.K. is made using foreign milk, sold by foreign brands.
Worse still, the infant formula industry is letting our children down, using harmful ingredients like palm oil and fish oil, which harm mineral absorption and bone density in babies (palm oil), are allergenic (fish oil) and devastate our planet’s rainforests and oceans, for the sake of cutting costs.
British children deserve better – the finest full-cream, grass-fed British dairy, lovingly hand-crafted with none of the nasties – no palm oil, no fish oils, no GMOs.
This is what we stand for. It’s who we are, where we’re from and what our children deserve.
