FRC’s Lindy Sharpe contributes to New Scientist’s ‘Brexit To Do List’

In March, Lindy Sharpe contributed to New Scientist’s ‘Brexit To Do List’, arguing that food governance is one of the key challenges of Brexit, given the number of regulations and standards that have to be disentangled, redesigned, repatriated, staffed up, budgeted and implemented over the next couple of years. These arrangements depend on the work of armies of public and private-sector professionals, in the fields (literally), and in the fields of environmental health, trading standards, public analysis, veterinary and crop science, plant breeding, pharmaceuticals, food technology, certification, HMRC and logistics. The public- sector workers among them must meet the challenge with, in many cases, resources that have been cut to the bone over the past decade.
