Brexit farming think tank set up by ADAS

The group was created by agricultural and environmental consultancy ADAS and will provide independent evidence, insight and analysis on Brexit issues relevant to food and farming.


ADAS BPG chair James Clarke said: “As we await the triggering of Article 50, it is becoming clear agriculture is just one of many competing business interests in the UK. The industry is already fighting to ensure its voice is heard.


“Recognising the needs of business and policymakers for evidence, knowledge and insight, we saw a role for ADAS as an independent information provider to those preparing for Brexit.


“The major issues, such as immigration and trade, are priorities. Others, such as regulations affecting environmental protection and the authorisation of pesticides and veterinary medicines, although having opportunities for simplification and change, may have to wait.”
