Brexit impact: UK Government suspends food industry consultations and reforms
The UK Government has bowed to pressure to delay policy making on chemicals, pesticides, plastics, clean air, waste and possible reforms on food-related matters, following last week’s “no-cooperation” letter from the food industry. More than 30 trade organizations within the UK’s farming and food and drink supply-chain threatened the Government with breaking off cooperation at this time of “potential crisis” as the countdown to Brexit continues. The groups state that it cannot be business as usual during no-deal preparations.
