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.
