Brexit: The NSA Keeps the Needs of UK Sheep Farmers in Sharp Focus

posted in: Uncategorised



The National Sheep Association (NSA) continues to call for assurances that in new trade deals, the industry will not be pressured into competing domestically with produce of lower standards.

NSA Chief Executive, Mr Stocker explains: “Sacrificing the high-quality British standards to allow lower-quality produce into the UK is absolutely unacceptable. Forcing British farmers to compete with food produced cheaply at a lower standard and quality will undermine UK agriculture and leave our farmers in an untenable position as consumers who aren’t familiar with why there is price disparity between imported produce and British produce may be drawn in by the cheaper price tags.”
