Food qual­ity will be at risk

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - YOURVOICE - Susan Swain.

THE qual­ity and safety of our food is pro­tected by stan­dards in­tro­duced by the EU.

Af­ter Brexit, if we stay in the UK, there will be no guar­an­tee pro­tec­tion for food qual­ity will re­main.

Pro­duc­ers will once again have a free-hand to in­clude all kinds of ar­ti­fi­cial colours, preser­va­tives and E num­bers — with­out obli­ga­tion to de­tail these on la­bels.
