UK Trade and Business Commission: Food and Drink trade since 1 January 2021

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This session will look at UK food and drink trade, the changes that came into force on January 1, their impact, how this can be mitigated, and the way this may change for better or worse in the future. There will be a particular focus on Northern Ireland, which is being treated as part of the EU in terms of rules covering goods products.

Different products and sizes of exporter are affected in different ways, with potentially different solutions, and therefore we need to seek specific examples wherever possible. The impact of delaying checks on products coming into the UK should also be considered.

Aodhán Connolly, Director Northern Ireland Retail Consortium, will be Chairing the session.


  • Emily Rees, Senior Fellow at ECIPE and Managing Director at Trade Strategies

  • Karin Goodburn, Director General of the Chilled Food Association (CFA)

  • Nick Allen, Chief Executive Officer of the British Meat Processors Association (BMPA)

  • William Bain, Policy Advisor at the British Retail Consortium
