Keep trade fair after Brexit

A petition submitted to the government supports the argument that the world's poorest farmers must not be penalised by new trading arrangements after the UK leaves the EU.

Sustain members the Fairtrade Foundation and Traidcraft have delivered a petition signed by 38,000 supporters to the Department for International Trade, stressing that the UK's withdrawal from the EU's trade deals must not mean that farmers and farm workers in developing countries lose out. Many of these farmers have protected status in EU trade deals -- which, the organisations argue, must be preserved by the UK after Brexit. Read more here.

Sustain is bringing together a range of campaign groups and organisations to help ensure that Brexit does not jeopardise hard-won food and environmental protections. Read more about our activities and support us  here.
