The fragility of the UK’s food system was exposed at the height of the pandemic. Now as we move to a new era beyond BREXIT, reflecting on the learnings from the first three months, our panel of policy makers, industry leaders and academics will look at how the UK’s food system must evolve in light of trade deals & tariffs, increases in food prices and the growing number of people facing food poverty.
