History of Food Law: Post-Brexit


On 31 December 2020 at 11.00 pm the United Kingdom completed the Brexit transition. EU law ceased to apply to the UK, except for all practical purposes it did apply. What was once EU law had simply become UK law, in the short term at least, it may subsequently be amended, repealed or simply kept.

In total there are some 19,000 EU legislative measures of which about 900 are directly concerned with food and drink.
