"Brexit, agriculture & dietary risks in the UK" with Dr Florian Freund @ Oxford Martin School

*Part of the Oxford Martin School lecture series ‘Food futures: how can we safeguard the planet’s health, and our own?’

When the UK joined the EU in 1973 all previous trade barriers with the EU were abolished, which led to a strong intensification of trade with the European continent.

This situation will soon be a thing of the past, however, as new trade barriers will be erected with the withdrawal. Since the food self-sufficiency rate in the UK is particular low newly invoked trade barriers will significantly affect how food is produced and consumed in the UK.
