Food Hygiene and Farming Standards

22nd June 2020

Having grown up in a farming family, worked in the past for the NFU, been the UK’s first ever Minister for Life Sciences and played a key role in the UK’s first ever Agri-Tech Industrial Strategy, I completely understand how vitally important Food Hygiene and Farming Welfare Standards are to this country.

That’s why, as part of my ongoing campaign to lobby Government on this issue, I was delighted to speak on the BBC Radio Norfolk Breakfast Show this morning – highlighting exactly why this is such an important matter.

I am 100% opposed to selling out UK farming and food producers on the altar of cheap food from producers of low value and low welfare products around the world.
