The Government shares the public’s high regard for food standards and safety, and we are proud to have some of the highest standards in the world. These high standards, including import requirements, will continue to apply when we leave the EU. Maintaining public confidence in the food we eat is vitally important. We are clear that we will not water down our food standards in pursuit of trade agreements.
