The UK’s record on food poverty is one of the most shameful in Europe. We knew a no-deal end to the transition period would mean high tariffs for food, putting pressure on household budgets and driving more families into food insecurity. That's why we launched the Affordable Food Deal campaign.
We worked with experts, like Unchecked UK, campaigns like Save British Farming and activists like Jack Monroe to ensure UK food remained accessible, affordable and of the highest quality.
Our campaign helped pressure the government into securing a tariff-free trade agreement with the EU.
But frictional trade with Europe, and other trade deal which may compromise our high food and agricultural standards, remain threats to UK food. We will work to make the EU-UK trade an Affordable Food Deal.
