Arla Foods joined farmer organisations from the United Kingdom (UK), Denmark, The Netherlands, Re-public of Ireland, France and Germany to call for the UK government and the European Union to pull out all the stops to avoid a No Deal BREXIT.
The call was made during the ‘Beyond Brexit: Farming for our Future’ conference in Whitehall, London on 25 October, which brought together farmers, government officials and businesses from across the UK and five European countries for the first time.
“It is important that the future relationship between the UK and EU remains open and farmers on both sides of the channel have a level playing field.” said Peter Giørtz-Carlsen Executive Vice President of Arla Europe.
With BREXIT negotiations stalled, the prospect of a no deal is very real. Arla has consistently advocated against a so called hard BREXIT, putting forward a positive solution which promotes free trade and high animal and food safety standards.
