The Government is proud of this country’s high standards of food safety and animal welfare, including for farm animals.

Our current high standards, including import requirements, will apply when we leave the EU. As part of our commitment to being a world leader in animal welfare we will use our independent seat in international fora such as the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) to push for stronger global standards.
