This landmark new report, based on six months of evidence gathering, highlights the difficulties faced by different sectors in the wake of Brexit, and also showcases personal testimonies to illustrate the impact Brexit is having on the ground.
It is clear from the evidence the Commission has heard that Brexit has seriously affected the UK’s trade in food - from concerns about food standards to worries about the costly effect of paperwork associated with post-Brexit trade. As supermarket shelves stand empty, and fears of price rises grow, we need to acknowledge that bad trade is propelling food poverty.
That’s why we’re asking our supporters to write to their MP as part of our Food Poverty is not a Fair Trade campaign.

We want the Government to implement the report’s recommendations, many of which present a practical solution to spiralling food costs. We’re also calling on the Government to reverse the cut to the £20 uplift to Universal Credit, which will simply put further strain on many hard-working families.
Make a start and be part of the solution - write to your MP today.
