In February, the EU Commission published a notice for food business operators detailing the legal repercussions, which need to be considered when the United Kingdom becomes a third country. This notice is also relevant for food coming from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
In addition, the UK Government has released information on actions that UK food producers should take before EU exit to ensure that trade can be maintained in a ‘no deal’ scenario, on issues such as, health marks on meat, fish and dairy products, food labelling and producing and processing organic food.
