Simon is a founder member of The Policy Group – specialists in policy and economic impacts of change in the agricultural and food industries.

Much of the impact of Brexit surrounds new tariff arrangements and customs control on trade. But changes are also expected in farm subsidies, availability of labour, pesticide legislation, introduction of genetically modified crops and environmental protection.

While it is not yet possible to foresee the conclusions to UK trade negotiations The Policy Group can identify for their clients the impact of the available options on price and source of supply. This in turn helps to identify financial risk and opportunities.

As negotiations progress, the range of options will narrow, allowing conclusions to be refined.
