Food culture and Brexit

The March meeting of the Food Ethics Council Business Forum considered the consequences of Britain remaining in or leaving the EU for food and agriculture and have now produced a concise report on the meeting: Business Forum

An interesting point is how the UK's food culture has strengthened since the country joined the EU. How much this is to do with the EU and how much due to other factors such as more sophisticated and informed consumers is a moot point, although the report argues that European food culture has had a beneficial effect which might be lost after Brexit.

In addition, Dan Crossley gives his reflections on various events on the subject (one of which I participated in) organized by the Food Ethics Council: Enough time to decide?
