Food Research Collaboration launches online resource on food after Brexit

Website will host reports, talks, blogs and more, from academia and civil society, to monitor and shape discussions of how British food and farming will look outside the EU 

The historic decision Britain took last June to leave the EU has profound implications for food and farming in the UK -- and also in the EU.

Sustain member the Food Research Collaboration -- which coordinates work on the food supply by academics and civil society -- has now launched a package of resources, to be updated on an ongoing basis, to enable members and others to keep up with this dynamic topic.
 
A new page on the FRC website (here) is devoted to current activity, as well as discussion and debate.

The FRC website is also publishing a series of blog posts on Brexit and Food as part of its Food Voices feature. The first two articles in the series are written by Professor Tim Lang, from the Centre for Food Policy at City University London, and Sue Davies from Which?

Last July, the FRC hosted a roundtable meeting to hear the views of almost 60 people from academe and civil society on food policy and Brexit. The report from this event is also available on the website.

Upcoming talks in the Food Thinkers series, hosted by City University London, will focus on food and Brexit. The first speaker to tackle the topic is Professor Tim Lang, on 26 October.

The FRC encourages all those who are engaging with Brexit and food in their work to inform us about their research, articles or events: contact@foodresearch.org.uk.

Sustain also monitors Brexit developments for information relevant to its members or likely to impact the sustainability of food and farming. Find out more about our current activities here.
