The future of food regulation in the UK post-Brexit: standards, delivery and the supply chain

Morning, Tuesday, 24th April 2018

Central London


With the recent announcement of the FSA’s planned proposals for a new regulatory framework, stakeholders across the food supply chain will have the opportunity to discuss priorities for its effective delivery.

Planned sessions will consider the potential and role of data sharing and intervention measures, maintaining consumer confidence in food safety, and catering for an increasingly diverse and changing sector.

Delegates will also assess the likely impact of Brexit on the food regulatory systems and the future direction of policy in the UK.
