Morrisons has promised to only sell British meat in what will prove to be a massive Brexit boost to Britain’s agricultural economy.

The supermarket chain already gets two thirds of its produce from British suppliers, and, considering roughly £5billion worth of meat comes to the UK from EU member states, farmers should be quids in.

The Co-Op also started stocking all-British meat in May this year.

Rob Youngson, Meat Director at Morrisons, speaking at the Great Yorkshire Show on Thursday, said: “Customers tell us that they want more homegrown food and we are listening.

“We have always been committed to selling British meat and today we are taking this a stage further by making a clear pledge that if you buy fresh meat at Morrisons it will be British.”

So much for the claims that Brexit would destroy the farming industry.
