Manifesto for a post-Brexit food industry

The Food and Drink Federation's five-point proposal calls, among other things, for a Government promise that there will be no more nutrient taxes.
 

Food industry trade organisation the Food and Drink Federation has produced a 'manifesto' of the five policies it wants the next Government to prioritise during the Brexit negotiations.
 
The priorities include:
  • Securing a smooth transition and avoiding a 'cliff edge';
  • Recognising that tackling obesity requires a mix of approaches -- so the industry wants a promise that there will be no further nutrient taxes;
  • Boosting exports;
  • Fostering 'home-grown' talent;
  • An industrial strategy that will drive 'transformational' growth
Read the manifesto here.
 
Sustain is bringing together a range of campaign groups and organisations to help ensure that Brexit does not jeopardise hard-won food and environmental protections. Read more about our activities and support us here.
