Trade deals podcast: Protect our food standards in law!

Sustain chief executive Kath Dalmeny discusses threats to our food standards in poorly regulated trade deals, in a podcast with the Brexit Civil Society Alliance.

Trade deals are long, complex, and often obscure but they touch far more than car parts. Jacob Millen-Bamford of the Brexit Civil Society Alliance (of which Sustain is a founding member) speaks to Ruth Bergan, from Trade Justice Movement, about how trade deals happen, what the parliamentary process in the UK is, and how that can be made more democratic. He also speaks to Kath Dalmeny, from Sustain, the alliance for better food and farming, to learn how trade deals change our rights and standards by exploring their impact on the food we eat.
