The impact of no-deal Brexit on food and farming

Tuesday 22 October 2019, 13:00 - 14:00


The prime minister has made clear that the UK will be leaving the EU “do or die” on 31 October – even if this means walking away without a deal. This could have huge implications for the UK’s food and farming sectors.

This event will consider how the food and farming sectors have been preparing for a no-deal Brexit and what more needs to be done by government and business before the end of October.

Our panel includes:

  • Professor Tim Lang, Professor of Food Policy, City University
  • Sue Pritchard, Director - Food, Farming and Countryside Commission, The RSA
  • Ian Wright CBE, Chief Executive, Food and Drink Federation
  • Nick von Westenholz, Director of EU Exit and International Trade, National Farmers’ Union

The event will be chaired by Joe Owen, Programme Director at the Institute for Government. There will also be an opportunity for audience questions.
