Countryside Alliance

The Countryside Alliance was created in 1997 as a response to the newly elected Labour Government's pledge to ban hunting with dogs and in its short life become the major British campaigning organisation on rural issues.

With around 100,000 members the Countryside Alliance defends and promotes country sports and rural life at Parliament, in the media and on the ground. ?

We support and recognise the valuable part farmers play not only in producing food to some of the highest standards in the world, but also their vital role in shaping and maintaining the landscape and communities for which Britain is renowned.

Our Food & Farming campaign highlights the importance and value of clear food labelling and assured food procurement to enable consumers to make informed choices and have confidence in the products they are buying.

It reaches out to butchers, chefs, journalists in print, radio and TV, and of course members of the public. We also deliver workshop programmes in catering colleges and provide in-store promotional support to supermarkets.

We provide a wealth of useful information on the benefits of eating British wild game, where to buy it and how to cook it, including nutritional facts, step by step guides to preparation, recipes and newsletters.

The Countryside Alliance Awards, celebrating rural food and highlighting good quality locally sourced produce, have become an established and reputable part of the rural calendar giving yet more support to the issues that matter to rural people in rural areas.
