Send a Cow is one of more than 80 organisations to have signed a letter to new Brexit Secretary David Davis and new Prime Minister Theresa May.

Although the focus of our work is in Africa, we believe firmly that food, farming and trade are global issues. The UK is heavily reliant on food imports, as well as on migrant agricultural labour.

The letter points out that better food, farming and trade policies could:

  • cut greenhouse gas emissions from farming and food industries
  • promote healthier diets to combat heart disease, cancers, diabetes, and obesity, thus saving the NHS and taxpayers millions of pounds
  • create a healthy economy
  • improve animal welfare
  • ensure a safe and traceable food supply

You can read the letter  - and read a Guardian article about it, too.
