FARMERS FOR IN – ADD YOUR NAME TODAY

Being part of the EU allows the UK farming industry to grow, innovate and create jobs.

Britain's farmers enjoy free access to the single market of 500 million customers, and Europe accounts for 73% of Britain’s agri-food exports from this market that is more than twice the size of the USA.

UK food and agricultural exports to the EU are worth around £11.4 billion a year.

How being in Europe supports British farming:

 

Increased trade, supporting jobs - Analysis by the independent Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) shows that over 76,000 jobs in British agriculture are linked to trade with the EU.

Protecting British goods - 64 British products are protected under EU quality schemes on product names. Products recognised under the schemes enjoy legal protection throughout the EU against imitation or name misuse, giving consumers confidence and enabling producers to charge more for a quality product.

Leaving could put all this at risk - Some leave campaigners support the UK moving to trade under WTO terms, which would mean the EU would apply new tariffs on UK-EU trade. Tariffs could be as high as 42% for dairy products.

Leaving the EU would hit growth, jobs and livelihoods in UK farming. We’d be putting so much at risk by leaving – it just isn’t worth it.
