Brexit and Sustainable Food Supply

  • We recognise that a primary concern is ensuring trade and the supply of food is maintained during EU exit, particularly in a ‘no deal’ scenario. In the lead up to March 2019, IFST recommends that food businesses prepare for the possibility of a ‘no deal’ scenarios. For more information see our ‘no deal’ scenario planning resources
  • Post EU exit, we will continue to engage with government to help ensure that food safety and standards are maintained or improved as the UK forges new rules and regulations (see Legislative Framework). We will also promote the sustainable supply of food, supporting the government’s pledge of a ‘green brexit’ and continuing our policy activities on a sustainable food framework
