Protection of food standards is something very important to the British public, which was made clear when millions of people signed petitions and wrote to their local MP.
Government decided to create the Trade and Agriculture Commission (TAC), which set out 22 recommendations to government based on:
- Developing an agri-food friendly trade policy
- Prioritising climate and nature
- Taking a strong stance on antimicrobial resistance
- Improving export opportunities for British farmers
- Publishing a set of core standards that imports need to meet
Following pressure from stakeholders, including the Future British Standards Coalition that is chaired by Sustain CEO Kath Dalmeny, the TAC will report on the potential impacts of trade deals to Parliament.
Sustain will lobby parliamentarians to protect food standards and stop a dangerous race to the bottom that is bad for people and planet.
