FEFAC draws attention to the sensitivity of the Article 50 discussions for agricultural markets and warns for potential impacts on the livestock and feed chain, both in the UK and the EU-27. FEFAC stresses the need to implement effective safeguard measures during the entire negotiation period to maintain fully functioning and accessible agricultural markets, in the interest of all European consumers, livestock farmers and market partners.
FEFAC members are convinced that a comprehensive free trade agreement between the UK and the EU-27, based on EU standards, would be the best outcome for the EU and UK feed & livestock sector. FEFAC has set up a dedicated Brexit Task Force to analyse potential trade impacts of the Brexit negotiations on the EU feed & livestock sector.
FEFAC and BFA are pleased to confirm the new dates of our XXIX FEFAC Congress which will be held on September 24-25, 2020 in Antwerp in the Queen Elisabeth Hall. We will shortly provide you with updated information regarding the draft programme and registration process.
