As factors at home and abroad put pressure on our reliable source of nutritious, sustainable and affordable food, the NFU continues to campaign and work with government to strengthen our national food security.

The NFU want to say a huge thank you to the more than one million people who signed our food standards petition in 2020.
It's because of the support we received from the British public that the government has answered our calls and created the Trade and Agriculture Commission – a body committed to safeguarding the UK's high standards of food production in future trade deals.
The UK's world-beating food standards
The British public made it clear that they want the food they eat to continue being produced to leading standards, even in the toughest global circumstances.
We're proud of the farming families who produce our nation's tasty, high-quality and affordable food. But they're only able to do this if they can compete fairly with the rest of world.
Every single one of you who signed the petition played a part in ensuring British farmers can continue to thrive and produce the food we love.
