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.

    Trade with the USA threatens both our farmers / food standards and the NHS. The USA is a nightmare for poor food standards and health. Been there and experienced it all.

    Dear Dr Fox,

    What about some significant export deals, rather than shabby import deals which threaten our standards and compromise our home industries? Are you sure you weren’t a better Doctor than you are a trade ambassador?

    Any lowering of food safety and animal welfare standards is unacceptable. We should not put ourselves in a position where our trade depends on inferior conditions being imposed upon us. E.U. deals are already better than we will ever get independently

    We need to maintain our long term minimum standards in UK. And then to improve them.

    It is unforgivable for lunatic brexiters to surrender hard won farming and food standards just to comply with the totally inadequate USA standards and poor regulation.
