Episode 127 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

This week, Craig talks to Ruth Watson from Keep Scotland The Brand a campaign organisation that calls for clear labelling of Scottish produce and resists replacing “Made in Scotland” labels with less clear, less valuable “Made in Britain” labels or shops removing marks of provenance altogether. They discuss why it is so important that we know where our food and other goods is made, why Scotland’s brand is so value domestically and internationally and what the implications could be for Scotland’s food security if we allow “Brand Scotland” to be replaced by “Bland Britain”.

Apologies for the slight decline in sound quality in this week’s episode. This was largely due to the Council deciding to mow a patch of grass outside while Craig was recording.
