Britain needs to grow more of its own food amid fears of shortages and price rises, a Tory MP has warned.

Daniel Kawczynski said the country must produce more of its own crops to insulate itself from the damage caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The 2 Sisters Food Group – the country’s biggest chicken producer – has warned that food prices could rise by 15 per cent this summer.

Some 30 per cent of the world’s wheat comes from Ukraine and Russia and the firm said the conflict ‘brings a major threat to food security in the UK’, potentially leading to shortages of wheat, barley and corn.

Mr Kawczynski has now written to Environment Secretary George Eustice to warn that ‘production of our own crops is of paramount importance in ensuring that we have enough food to feed our population’.
