Food & Farming

Keith wants to give farmers a better deal and curb the power of the big supermarkets to drive down prices. He is working towards a more sustainable and equitable global food system which prioritises local and organic farming – and for reform of the EU’s controversial Common Agricultural Policy. Keith opposes the development of use of GM technology in producing food and crops, and will use his role in the European Parliament to ensure the agri-business sector is kept in check.
