The pig farmer taking on Tesco
Pig farming can be a messy business, but some say supermarkets are playing an even dirtier game. Mr Baugh says he's been forced to change the name of his business after Tesco rebranded its own label pork products as "Woodside Farms". The group has urged Tesco - along with Aldi, Asda and Lidl - to stop using so-called "Fake farm" branding, arguing that it misleads shoppers about the origins of produce. Mr Baugh admits Woodside is a common farm name in Britain, but says he's concerned by Tesco's attitude towards the farming community. "Farmers are all independent businesses, they don't all have the financial backing that Tesco has."
