This article reports on the need for British food producers to prove their environmental credentials to win supermarket contracts in the future, according to a survey of food suppliers. Accounting firm Grant Thornton's survey found that ignoring environmental impact of produce will no longer be acceptable as supermarkets place more importance on carbon footprints and food miles. Among the 23 businesses claiming to measure food miles in our survey, 15 did not know what the average amount travelled by their produce was, said Grant Thornton's Ian Carr.
