Brussels, 16 October 2020
The EU agri-food chain supports the continuation of the negotiations in the coming weeks and we are pleased the EU reaffirmed its determination to have a close partnership with the UK on the basis of the EU negotiations directives, while maintaining the integrity of the single market.
Nevertheless, it’s a tale of another summit and another very worrying outcome for Europe’s farmers, agri-cooperatives, food businesses and traders. Where our businesses seek certainty, they are given confusion. Where they seek speed, they have delay.
