Brexit: Farm leaders and food chiefs warn on EU tariffs

Farmers, supermarkets and food suppliers have called on Theresa May to secure a free trade deal with the European Union after Brexit.

Industry bosses said failure to do so could harm the UK’s supply of food and drink and lead to higher prices.

The National Farmers Union (NFU), the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) and the British Retail Consortium (BRC) made the call in a joint letter.

Separately, the EEF engineering group also said a deal needed to be struck.
