Reflecting on the first two months of the end of transition, the panel will review the impact of the UK’s trade deals on the global food system. How has the UK managed in the wake of leaving the EU? What is the result for production, retail and consumers? Has trading been compromised from both import and export? How have British and international businesses been affected by trading outside the UK?
