This month I spent two weeks driving around in Great Britain, talking to farmers, fishers and other food producers about Brexit. How has the prospect of Brexit affected their business? Has it changed the way they plan for the future?
What struck me most was the diversity of opinions about what Brexit was really about, and what they expect to happen in the near future. I've heard everything from 'nothing will change' to 'everything will change', from 'a second referendum is the worst thing that could happen' to 'a second referendum is the best thing we can do now'. The only constant seems to be that people are really, really tired and annoyed about being held hostage in this state of uncertainty by their elected leaders.
As it looks now, Theresa May will bring her deal back to parliament for a third time next week. I'm planning to return to the UK in July to see how these eleven British food professionals are dealing with the outcome of Brexit, whatever it may be.
While nothing is changing on a daily basis in the British politics, find the stories of 11 food professionals surviving a Brexit chaos online now.
