- Voice of the regions: England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Ireland
- How will businesses continue to trade after the agreed transition period?
- What security challenges should we be prioritising?
- Watered down food safety standards: Fact or Fiction?
As negotiations continue Food Brexit will adapt and evolve to ensure the most current up-to-date information is incorporated into the programme. Register your interest if you would like to keep up-to-date with the latest programme updates and conference information.
