Britain will not lower its regulation around environmental protection, animal welfare and food standards as part of trade talks with the United States, it said in a document setting out its mandate on Monday, Trend reports with reference to Reuters.

“The UK’s independent food regulators will continue to ensure that all food imports into the UK comply with those high standards,” it said.

“Without exception, imports into the UK will meet our stringent food safety standards - all food imports into the UK must be safe and this will not change in any future agreement.”
