Buy British. We have fantastic lamb in the U.K., especially in Wales. Why are we buying from New Zealand? The carbon footprint is about as big as it gets. Totally unnecessary. Support our British local butchers.

Carbon footprint in uk lamb is higher than lamb from NZ, this is mainly because lambs from NZ eat grass and uk lamb is given feed, For each tonne of NZ lamb produced and imported, 688kg of CO2 is emitted. When compared to the 2849.1kg of CO2 emitted in UK production, this is inclusive of food miles.

Poor little lamb.

Only kidding, whilst they're cute, I do like to eat lamb
Baaaaaaa Dinner! Nom nom
Why is this hot when its cheaper elsewhere? £5.56 per 1 kg at Iceland or £4.97 at Asda. No brainer really as you have a choice of size in Asda whereas the Iceland one must be very piddly being under 2kg

I know, however it’s very short sighted to view things that way. Money spent in a local British butchers or any local shop goes back into our economy making it stronger and giving people employment. Buying things simply because they’re cheaper is counterproductive. That’s how China became so wealthy but also the biggest source of pollution on the planet. In regards to meat, I’d much rather eat it from a farm a few miles away, than have it travel from the furthest point on earth in all sorts of conditions.

Iceland's just round the corner from me, Asda is miles away. Iceland ones are usually 1.8 - 2.1 kg, so pick carefully and it's less than a fiver per kg. I've even had 2.2kg before.
Buying something from the furthest place away from us to save a couple of quid, when we have it here already doesn’t seem that good of a deal when you consider the impact on the economy and employment. I love saving money too, but I’d not want to see people on the dole for a cheaper bit of lamb. I admit I’m probably in the minority, but if we can produce something here, we should not be importing it. The government should be encouraging people to source locally.

They're currently trying...
Have to feel for the lambs at this time of year - they're just getting on their feet and someone chops one of their legs off. All these poor three legged lambs just so people can have a leg of lamb.
If you're going to eat lamb please eat the full lamb

Its not less than a fiver per kilo from your link? It clearly states its £5.56 a kilo ?

That’s because they’re a minimum weight of 1.8kg. But frequently they’re significantly larger than minimum, and still priced the same.

There is no way that it is more productive to eat meat flown from that far away over British stock. No way. People can choose whichever they want and publish any statistics that back up their point, but fresh, local produce is always the best option.

That sounds dangerously like "common sense beats evidence any day". I'm not sure what you mean by "more productive" but if you look at it purely in terms of CO2 emissions, it's often nowhere near as clear-cut as you might expect. Shipping by boat is actually pretty efficient in CO2 terms, so I can believe that NZ lamb might be lower than feedstock-fed UK lamb. On a separate topic, it can be argued (and frequently is by George Monbiot in particular) that UK sheep farming is really bad for the rural environment and for water management.

Well, I’d hate to sound dangerous, but if I eat meat it comes from a local farm and sold by the local butcher who’ve been in the same little shop in our town for about 100 years. I’d certainly not eat meat that could’ve been fed anything, then frozen and shipped across the planet. I can’t see how paying New Zealand farmers is better than buying from our own and putting the money back into our economy. Government put out all kinds of statistics that suit their agenda, which is usually to do with golden handshakes. The British publics best interests are rarely an issue. I can not verify the CO2 info for myself, so I’m just going to go with what I’ve already said. Buy British from local butchers. Thanks anyway.

Seems like a good plan. Makes sense to know what you're eating and it's good to support local industry. But you seemed to be saying that the CO2 figures couldn't possibly be right, and I'm just suggesting that they could well be. Sadly South-West London doesn't have much in the way of local sheep farmers (except the ones that keep the grass down around the reservoirs near Staines), so it's less clear-cut for me. I would never, and will never eat US-grown meat, but I'm happy to eat NZ lamb.

It’s most probable that your statistics and fact are accurate, but there’s also the possibility that reported figures done by government bodies are coerced and orchestrated to suit political agendas so we keep buying foreign meat, whilst the New Zealand government give nice juicy envelopes of cash to certain MPs. Unfortunately, regular folks like us have no definitive way of finding out. That being said, you’re probably right.
