8 out of 10 Brits would rather keep British food standards than get a trade deal with the United States but International Trade secretary Liam Fox refuses to rule out the future import of chlorinated chicken and hormone-fed beef. 

The National Farmers Union says, "It is imperative that any future trade deals, including a possible deal with the US, do not allow the imports of food produced to lower standards than those required of British farmers"

But politicians like Jacob Rees Mogg have called for lowering UK standards to get trade deals with other countries. 

If you're one of the millions of Brits who don't think a US trade deal is worth lowering our standards for, tell Liam Fox today:

To Liam Fox MP - 

I do not accept that lowering food standards is a price worth paying for a trade deal with the United States of America. 

Allowing cheap import of US products into the UK threatens our animal welfare and our local farmers.

I call upon you to protect British food standards and to rule out US produce that does not meet those standards.

Make this clear today.

    It was obvious that forming trade deals with the US and other countries would require us to reduce our food standards and regulations. The EU has some of the highest food standards in the world so if Brexit happens, this is likely to happen.

    Absolutely no lowering of food standards to appease the US, we must stay aligned with EU standards.

    We must maintain the food safety standards agreed with the EU. To accept anything less in an effort to appease Trump’s demands is not only wrong, but borders in criminal negligence.

    The UK has leading food producers and food standards, and as a result extremely low fates of food-related illnesses and food poisoning. Let’s keep it that way! Stopping Brexit would be best!!
