The article focuses on the Red Tractor food assurance scheme, which according to the Tenant Farmers Association (TFA) in Great Britain, should not be funded by the money of farmers. The TFA notes that although the logos appear on the British produce that is worth £7.5 billion, farmers had not seen much benefit from the project. TFA national chairman Greg Bliss states that farmers should be given grants to help them create logos and branding, either individually or through co-operatives.
