Supporting the Farmers

Waitrose have been supporting farmers during the harsh and unseasonal weather conditions, by providing 30,000 'lamb macs' to farmers in Wales and the West Country.  The macs are made of a light plastic material and are completely biodegradable and recycleable.

The business has been working closely with all our farmers to assess the impact of the snow on lamb supplies and because of the dedicated supply chain and support from suppliers Dalehead Foods, it has been easier to get in touch with farmers who are lambing and offer support where necessary.
