No-deal Brexit a ‘grisly’ prospect for farming, warn industry leaders

No-deal Brexit a ‘grisly’ prospect for farming, warn industry leaders


Food and farming industry representatives have issued a stark warning about the negative impact of a “no-deal” Brexit, following publication of the latest “technical notes” by Defra.

Food and Drink Federation (FDF) chief executive Ian Wright described such an outcome as “grisly”, saying it would bring chaos to the ports, serious disruption to food supplies, increased business costs and rising consumer prices.

NFU president Minette Batters agreed a ”no-deal” Brexit would be “catastrophic for British agriculture”, with farmers facing “an immediate trade embargo for many of their products, which would severely threaten livelihoods and businesses”.
