The Government is working to ensure that the United Kingdom is able to cope with any potential delays at borders that may arise in the short term from the unlikely event of a no-deal outcome to our negotiations on exiting the European Union. Our planning will ensure that from the day the UK leaves the EU, we will have the necessary resources to continue to protect UK consumers from food safety risks and to ensure uninterrupted supplies of the foods they need, including foods for special medical purposes.
