In the US, factory-farms have low hygiene and welfare standards to ramp up production so they can drive down costs.
The UK has been protected from imports of chlorinated chicken, hormone-fed beef and other low standard food products through the EU for decades. But with the UK now out of the EU, the US is piling on pressure for us to weaken our trading standards as part of a new trade deal.
We can’t let Trump rewrite our rulebook. We need a food system that respects animals and restores nature. Tell the government to put the UK’s environmental, food safety and animal welfare protections into law so that harmful imports like chlorinated chicken are banned in all future trade deals!
