Briefing on the impact of no-deal Brexit on food supplies, standards, prices and Sustain’s call for a no-deal Brexit hardship fund


This Sustain briefing is on the impact of no-deal Brexit on food supplies, standards, prices and Sustain’s call for a no-deal Brexit hardship fund to help vulnerable people access the food they need in the event of disruption to supply, food shortages or significant price rises.

The Sustain alliance has expressed profound concerns about the implications for food, farming, fishing and the environment of a no-deal Brexit. We summarise them in this briefing under the following headings:

1. Consequences of ‘no deal’ on our food system

  • Securing a reliable and affordable food supply
  • Maintaining high food safety and standards
  • Supporting good livelihoods

2. Food price inflation

3. ‘Cheap food’

4. Being straight with the public

5. Sustain’s view on a no-deal Brexit hardship fund

The briefing also provides an appendix of recent Parliamentary Questions relevant to this theme.
