The United Kingdom National Farmers Union (NFU) launched on the 1 July 2016 UK farming’s most significant consultation over the impact of Brexit on agriculture and what a domestic farming policy should look like in the future outside the EU.

NFU President Meurig Raymond said the UK Government must not ignore the economic importance of the farming sector – it’s the bedrock of the UK’s largest manufacturing industry, food and drink, which is worth £108bn. This industry employs 3.9m people.
