Brexit and Food
The UK food industry has been entwined within European Union (EU) regulations over the last four decades. Food quality and standards are underpinned by EU regulations enacted into UK legislation. After leaving the EU, the UK Government and devolved administrations will be responsible for developing and adopting legislation and regulation to replace the current arrangements. Wales’ consumers will want to be reassured that standards will not be negated, and the food industry will seek reassurances over export arrangements with the EU and other international markets.
