Boris Johnson: Don't break your promise on food and animal welfare standards in trade deals


We were disappointed to hear that your government is backtracking on its promise to ensure all the food we eat is produced to the UK's high food and animal welfare standards, when signing trade deals with countries like the US.

This isn't only about food safety. It's also about ensuring that the high animal welfare standards British farmers uphold are applied equally, no matter where food is produced. Not doing so could undercut British farmers and put their livelihoods at risk.

We're asking you again: don't let cheap, low-quality fruit, vegetables and meat into our country. This recent news proves that your promises aren't enough. We're calling on you to put into law rules to ban food that violates our high animal welfare and food standards.

Signed,

Thousands of people from across the UK
