As we face a time of intense legislative change in the wake of the UK’s departure from the EU, now more than ever we must stand up for our labour rights, defend our soils, water and biodiversity, and safeguard the welfare of the animals we work alongside.
As the UK embarks on new international trade deals with its economic allies, we see it as our duty and responsibility – as representatives of UK food producers – to ensure that any new trade agreements do not compromise the viability of domestic food production systems. Free trade deals which lack robust regulations will saturate the UK food market with cheaper goods produced to a lower standard, undercutting British farmers and severely destabilising farming livelihoods. We believe that a transition to short, localised supply chains must be supported in government policy, and where imports are needed, they must be held to high production, labour and environmental standards.
