Food Agendas in a Post-Brexit Future: BSUFN Symposium 2017
6th February 2017
Brighton, UK (buy tickets)
There has been much talk of the ways in which the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, or ‘Brexit’, will impact British farmers due to changes to the Common Agricultural Policy. We believe that Brexit will have far reaching effects across the food systems in many ways, in the UK, Europe and beyond. From policy implications for food safety standards and nutrition labels, to international trade and markets, to controls on chemical pesticides and the regulation of genetically modified (GM) organisms, and to diet and public health, and more.
To reflect current discussions about Brexit and its implications, the Brighton and Sussex Universities Food Network (BSUFN) Annual Symposium 2017 will consider food agendas in a post-Brexit future. This may reflect anticipated impacts of Brexit on the UK food system as well as implications for food agendas in other countries and regions of the world. Topics may explore the future of food in the immediate aftermath of Brexit, likely to be 2019, or a more distant horizon.
STEPS speakers at the event include Adrian Ely and Erik Millstone. You can follow the event on Twitter using the hashtag #BSUFN17.
