Hippocrates once said "Let food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food". With TTIP, that medicine might be poison. European food safety standards would go out the window, allowing a host of unregulated chemicals and diseases into our food supply. Hippocrates would not be a fan. Neither am I.

Anyone who has read Steve Hilton or Jamie Oliver's brilliant work on global food production will know what a terrifying concept TTIP is. We must do everything possible to stop it from happening or face the consequences of exacerbating the inhuman practices animals are experiencing and the resulting human diseases we are suffering.

Great businesses of the twenty-first century are reconnecting with delivering real social and environmental value – a purpose beyond pure shareholder value. TTIP doesn’t just fly in the face of this important, urgent progressive movement, it spits in it. Business as a true force for good is based on trust, transparency and service for the common good. TTIP fundamentally undermines this. There is no place for it in a future where people and planet must prosper alongside profit.

TTIP is the antithesis of what a sustainable future needs. We need community based, organic agriculture and health systems that nourish people, plants and planet. We need a progressive business model that protects our environment and serves our society. TIPP does not do this and we need to keep it out.
