Food standards petition

Do you want the food you eat to continue to be produced to the world leading standards you’ve come to expect, even in the toughest global circumstances?

The UK Government has the opportunity right now to put into law rules that prevent food being imported to the UK which is produced in ways that would be illegal here

Here at Countryside we champion food, farming and rural life, supporting the farming families who are proud to produce our nation's tasty, high quality and affordable food. But they're only able to do this if they can compete fairly with the rest of world. Sign our food standards petition and ask the UK Government to ensure all food imports are produced to the same high standards as British farmers.

Always support British farmers. Purchase locally sourced meat and veg and support farmers markets and small independent shops

Don’t water down the high standards the British agricultural industry has risen too.

It is not right for the general public to have to put up with sub standard food & it is not fair on our food producers to carry on with all the extra expense producing to our standards then have foreign producers, who do not have that extra expense competing with us.

We must not let below standards into the UK for whatever reason. It is not a bargaining tool it is people’s health.

British governments of any hue must back British farming and food security rather than subserve national and social interests to low standard, low cost (to the retail industry), globalist economic orthodoxy. Government and establishment obsession with global market primacy has the one goal of promoting corporate interests, which has proven to be detrimental to national social, cultural and health concerns - lowering of animal welfare standards and crashing bee populations being examples of a permissive attitude to corporate interests and a profit at any cost mentality.
