Tim Lang warns of dire disruption to UK’s #food and #farming with #Brexit

In an interview I did last week with Tim Lang, professor of Food Policy at City University at the Extinction and Livestock conference in London (more of that in a later blog), he explains why he feels Brexit will cause a major disruption to the UK food system. He discusses some of these effects on a food system that relies on just-in-time deliveries to keep food on the shelves and why they will hit the poorest hardest.

The report he refers to in the interview is ‘A Food Brexit: time to get real’ by Professor Tim Lang (City, University of London), Professor Erik Millstone (University of Sussex),  and Professor Terry Marsden (Cardiff University) and is available here.
