Ask Red Tractor to improve standards to drive pesticide reduction

Red Tractor – the UK’s largest food standards label – is lagging behind on tackling pesticides, undermining claims that its logo is a marker of stronger environmental protection.

The Nature Friendly Farming Network, PAN UK and RSPB have identified a range of improvements that Red Tractor urgently needs to make, including better support for its certified farmers to reduce their pesticide use and adopt non-chemical alternatives.

If Red Tractor is willing to change then it could have a unique role to play in driving the transition to a more sustainable farming system that works with nature, instead of against it.

Email their CEO today and urge him to take action to strengthen Red Tractor standards in order to reduce pesticide-related harms to both human health and the environment.
