New blog series: Brexit Briefings Update
The UK’s Food Research Collaboration (FRC) has launched a new blog series, “Brexit Briefings Update”. The series aims to revisit policy areas already covered by the FRC’s Food Brexit Briefings series of papers (on food policy issues linked to the UK’s upcoming departure from the European Union), covering any updates that have occurred since publication. The first post in the series is “Farm animal welfare in the UK: setting the bar higher”.
Other Brexit content in the FCRN research library includes:
- Sugar reduction in post-Brexit UK: A supply-side policy agenda
- Fish, fishing and Brexit
- Local Authorities advised to prepare food Brexit plans
- A better Brexit for farm animals
- Hormone-treated beef: Should Britain accept it after Brexit?
- Brexit No Deal technical notices
- Feeding Britain: food security after Brexit
- Brexit business forum
Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering just over 10 million square kilometres or 6.8% of the global land area, but it is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of around 740 million people or about 11% of the world's population. Its climate is heavily affected by warm Atlantic currents that temper winters and summers on much of the continent. In the European Union, farmers represent only 4.7% of the working population, yet manage nearly half of its land area.
