Quality of foods under threat
Sir,– Currently the quality and safety of our foods is protected by standards that were introduced by the European Union.
Unless Scotland becomes independent before Brexit and remains in the EU, we will lose this protection for our food.
After Brexit, if we stay in the UK, there will be no guarantee that protection for food quality will remain.
Producers will once again have a free hand to include all kinds of “artificial colours”, unspecified “preservatives” and “E numbers” without any obligation to
detail on these foods’ labels. Susan Swain. Tyme Cottage, Innerwick, Dunbar.
