BPC Supports French Biofuels Halt

19 September 2012, at 10:38am

UK - On September 12, the French government called for a pause in the global development of biofuels to help ease rapidly rising food prices. Now, the British Poultry Council (BPC) has expressed its support.

Peter Bradnock, Chief Executive of the British Poultry Council (BPC), said: “The French government’s call for a pause in biofuel development is a welcome response to rapidly increasing feed costs. The wasteful use of food crops for biofuels instead of farming has a direct impact on food prices and already hard-pressed consumers. The BPC and its international partners has been calling on politicians worldwide to step in.

“It isn’t fair to ask low-income families without cars to pay more for food while subsidising biofuels. Politicians in the UK and EU must also fight against the disastrous CAP reform proposals to take good agricultural land out of crop production when what the world needs is more not less food capacity.”
