Mega coalition calls for food to be at heart of #Brexit talks

75 of the biggest food producing organisations in the country, who employ almost 1 million people and have a combined turnover of £92 billion, have written to the Prime Minister to warn food security, food safety, stewardship of the countryside and affordable food are ‘at risk’ if the Government does not deliver for the industry in the Brexit talks.

 

The letter was co-ordinated by the UK’s farming unions.

 

NFU president Meurig Raymond said: “Agriculture is a litmus test for the Government’s Brexit negotiations. As the sector most heavily impacted by the referendum outcome, if the Government can make British farming a success post-Brexit then it will be the clearest indication that the country can succeed outside Europe.”

 

Signatories to the letter come from all parts of the supply chain, and include Sainsbury’s, Marks and Spencer, Dairy Crest, Muller and Weetabix.
