Want to make it more personal?

Uploading your own photo is the perfect way to do just that. It doesn’t have to be anything special either – a delicious meal you’ve cooked, a family portrait or simply you or your family enjoying the iconic British countryside. Or, if you're a farmer, a selfie of you on farm works really well. If you want some inspiration for what to post, simply choose your favourite text and photo combination from the options below.  

Step 1: Choose a piece of text to copy and paste your into your post or tweet

Our food and nutrition is our first line of defense for our health and immune systems. Why is the world suffering and dying? Insects? Wildlife? Oceans? People? Because the air and land and water tables are being saturated with the same hormones and chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, disinfectants, that are being pumped into the very food that they are proposing to serve up on our tables with these new trade deals and degraded standards. So what are the repercussions on human health, on those that will be consuming this produce? I can very well imagine. We must concentrate on improving the already relatively safe standards of our foods and the food industries, and celebrating the farmers in this country, small and large, that work with the land and the animals to fill our bellies.

The government must not compromise our high food standards for inferior trade deals with the US and other countries!

Red Tractor is the minimum we should expect...but we should aim higher as it's not always as good as you'd think for animal welfare.

The British Government should support the British Farmer and NOT sell out the British Farmers to Donald Trump and the US

There hasn’t been any updates on any new trade deals secured to replace those already in place through the UK membership of EU - are there any deals already signed and how do they compare? How can we survive without continuing membership of the single market?
