We believe it is possible to have great tasting, healthy, affordable food that is kind to the planet and animals. Our mission to help everyone have access to a super diet.
Meat and dairy production is disastrous for the environment, inherently cruel and not good for human health.
We will support farmers in switching from animal to plant based food production.
We will encourage farming businesses by a combination of tax and regulation elimination.
The Peoples Party will:
- encourage farmers to concentrate on the production of tasty, high quality, wholesome and health-promoting foodstuffs
- abolish subsidies and establish measures to compensate for the loss of agricultural subsidies such as payments for maintaining wildlife habitats, encourage the reintroduction of hedgerows and trees
- phase out meat and dairy products in favour of plant-based foods, and cultured meat by 2050, with a 25% reduction by 2030
- encourage housing development on land no longer required for livestock
- we will ban factory farming of livestock and any other farming method that exploits animals
- phase out the routine use of antibiotics in agriculture
- we will encourage and support the production of alternatives to animal-based foods
- tackle the scourge of obesity with decisive action on fattening foods
- ban the killing of animals without stunning
- ban all non UK based fishing boats from UK waters, ban industrial fishing and stop inhumane fishing practices
- encourage developing economies to export agricultural produce to the UK in eco-friendly ways
