The LoopyFood.net‘s Food Campaigns Board highlights just some of the many campaigns going on at the moment to fight for a clean, wholesome and resilient food supply, as well as for protection of the environment and wildlife. Please browse the campaigns and click-through to find out more and/or to contribute – either by signing a petition or donating to the cause; not all people who care about these issues are in a position to take direct action, but all can contribute in some way, depending on their circumstances and commitment. Food-related campaigns can be discussed in the Campaigns Forum. Finally, check out the LoopyFood.net Facebook page for more frequently updated information. Although UK-focussed at the moment, it is hoped that this part of LoopyFood.net will develop a more international flavour over time. LoopyFood.net‘s campaigns and campaign contributions are listed on the right sidebar (at the top) and at the bottom of this page.

No to Lowering UK Food Standards in a US Trade Deal!
There is a real danger that a post-Brexit trade deal with the USA will lead to a lowering of UK food standards so that US producers can import to the UK food that is currently not allowed here – food such as chlorinated chicken, hormone-injected beef and Genetically-Modified ‘franken-foods’! Are you worried about this? You should be! Not only is this a threat to public health, but it is a threat to UK agriculture, since UK farmers will not be able to compete with such cheap imports; even if they participate in a ‘race to the bottom’ in terms of food standards (with implications for farm-animal welfare in the UK) there is no way they will be able to compete with industrial-scale feed lots in the US. It is an all-round bad idea. LoopyFood.net has started a petition to protest against this possibility – please sign and share it here: LoopyFood.net Petition: No to Lower UK Food Standards in a US Trade Deal!
