Retailers Should Stack the Shelves in Favour of Scottish Producers


Commenting on reports that reveal farmers across the Borders are getting 20% less in price for lambs and breeding sheep compared with last year, Scottish Liberal Democrat MSP for South Scotland Jim Hume, said:

 

“The strength of the pound of course has an impact on our exports.

 

“But retailers are in prime position to help producers because they can literally stack the shelves in favour of Scottish produce.”
