The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) has called on the government to ensure that the UK can deliver continued high standards at competitive consumer prices post-Brexit.
The FDF, which represents the food and manufacturing industry, has set out a series of recommendations to the government ahead of January 31, the date the UK is set to formally leave the EU.
Called Global Britain: Trade Policy for a World Class Food, Drink and Agricultural Industry, the paper was developed by the cross-sectoral Food and Drink Industry Brexit Roundtable.
Key recommendations set out in the paper include: accommodating rules of origin for food and drink; giving business time to adapt to changes in “competitive positioning”; encouraging job creation and value addition by “prioritising agri-food”; and retaining the UK’s ability to “deliver high standards at competitive consumer prices”.
