AHDB report highlights 'No Deal' challenge

AHDB report highlights No Deal challenge

A new report from AHDB offers new insight into the potential impacts on the UK's trade in agricultural and horticultural goods.

AHDB's new Horizon report, 'Brexit prospects for UK agri-food trade', examines how both an orderly withdrawal and a no deal scenario will affect trade across the UK's main farming sectors.

The report looks at the current trade situation, potential tariff levels and the size of the domestic production base to reveal a complex picture for UK agriculture and horticulture after Brexit. It also includes a series of sector-specific 'bite-size' versions for dairy, beef and lamb, pork, cereals and oilseeds, potatoes and horticulture.

Online tools

In addition, AHDB has updated the Brexit section of its website to help the industry prepare to include all government guidance relevant to agriculture and horticulture sector, including regulation, importing and exporting, product safety and labeling, the environment and labour.

Practical tools include:

  • The Brexit Impact Calculator for farmers and growers to run their data through three post-Brexit scenarios to gauge the potential impact on their businesses.

    The Resilience Checklist helps better understand business strengths and areas for improvement by scoring themselves across key areas, signposting relevant management tools, templates and advice.
