Food and Drink Federation response to possible Brexit agreement

Speaking about the possibility of a Brexit agreement, FDF Chief Executive, Ian Wright CBE said:

“We would welcome any clarity relating to a potential agreement with the EU. While this is a step in the right direction, uncertainty remains. Food and drink manufacturers will have to continue planning for a variety of scenarios until our politicians have cast their judgement on the suitability of this deal. This will result in businesses incurring significant costs and devoting additional time and effort to such endeavours. Until the withdrawal agreement implementation bill receives Royal Assent, the spectre of a 'no-deal' Brexit looms large over our industry.”
