Farm Expert Interview 5: Pete Ritchie

Pete Ritchie, Executive Director of Nourish Scotland and owner of Whitmuir the Organic Place, speaks to us about the need to shake up the food system. He says that a larger number of smaller scale abattoirs is the way forward.

“We need to modernise, so that we re-design with the purpose of minimising animal stress and maximise the potential of traceability in the local food system… We could redesign the local farm system to make better jobs for people, better experiences for animals, and a closer connection between producers and consumers.”
