Dorset local food and drink

Dorset is home to some of the most delicious and exceptional food in England. However too much of our food comes from the big supermarket chains which sell too little locally produced food. 

As supermarkets can dictate the price they pay farmers, many are being forced to close. The local shops that do sell local food are being driven out of business, and therefore need your support as do the producers.

We would like to ask CPRE members not only to help our village shops but also to encourage parish councils to help these shops resolve their parking and other issues, and urge district councils to give 100% business rates relief automatically. Therefore please spend more and make your voice heard!
