No-deal food planning in UK Brexit

Lang, T. ORCID: 0000-0002-1184-8344 (2019). No-deal food planning in UK Brexit. The Lancet, 394(10201), pp. 814-815. doi: 10.1016/s0140-6736(19)31769-6


Even for a country with a long history of arguments about food supply, the UK's present situation is remarkable. A country that received 28% of its food in 2018 directly from the European Union (EU), plus 11% more through EU trade deals, is now planning, under the leadership of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, to leave the EU (“Brexit”) on Oct 31, 2019, with or without an agreement on how and what the terms are for trade, customs, and food security. The food implications for consumers and public health of a no-deal Brexit are seeping out of government but deserve full scrutiny.
