Preparing for Brexit - Agriculture & Food Sector

The UK will leave the EU on 31st January 2020.

The UK will enter a transition period after that date until December 2020. The transition period was agreed to allow the UK and EU to agree a deal on their future relationship. During this period the majority of the current EU rules and trading arrangements remain in place with no significant changes in most areas.

The government has ruled out any form of extension to the transition period. If no trade deal has been agreed and ratified by the end of the year, then the UK faces the prospect of tariffs on exports to the EU.

The food and farming sectors make a major contribution to the economy, communities and environment of Monmouthshire. Welsh Government Brexit Guidance for these sectors is available on the Preparing Wales website.

Welsh Government has also worked closely with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). As a result, the information in its technical notices is relevant to Wales.

Advice from UK Government on Brexit for businesses is available at:

More support and advice is also available from Business Wales and  Farming Connect .

Information and tools about Brexit are also available from the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.
