In the aftermath of the UK referendum on EU membership, the agribusiness sector is facing considerable uncertainty.

There are many questions to be answered such as what type of relationship the country will have with the bloc post-‘Brexit’ and how a future UK farming policy will shape up.

UK agri-food businesses have made clear that maintaining access to the single market should be a priority for the UK in exit talks but there are a number of options on the table for what will potentially be one of the most complex political negotiations ever undertaken.
