Gathering intelligence

As well as regularly tracking shopper attitudes towards EU Exit, we liaise with government, trade associations and businesses to understand how a new relationship with Europe will impact the food and consumer goods industry.

Helping companies to prepare

We help companies prepare for a new relationship with Europe through our series of informative articles, conference calls and webinars. We also support the Brexit Food Hub, an FAQ website produced in partnership with 27 organisations.

Contingency planning

Changes to how we trade with the European Union could disrupt supply chains. We work with industry to support effective dialogue with government in a crisis, including through our membership of the Defra Food Resilience Industry Forum and the Food Chain Emergency Liaison Group.

Post-EU-Exit thinking

We support the food and consumer goods industry in preparing for the future, including planning for different political scenarios, advice on boosting productivity and skills and understanding future trade priorities.
