The UK is unprepared for the most complex ever change to its food system, which will be required before Brexit, according to a new briefing paper published by SPRU, titled ‘A Food Brexit: time to get real’ (PDF).
The report is written by three leading food policy specialists. They are Professor Tim Lang (City, University of London), STEPS member Professor Erik Millstone (University of Sussex), and Professor Terry Marsden (Cardiff University). They conclude that leaving the European Union poses serious risks to consumer interests, public health, businesses and workers in the food sector.
