A Dutch perspective on UK farming post-Brexit

Dutch agricultural counsellor Tim Heddema says he hopes the UK government will bring together farming, research and consumers post-Brexit.

Mr Heddema is agricultural counsellor at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in London, working to promote Dutch farming products and policies.

The role was re-established following last summer’s EU referendum vote, which brought a “new necessity” to preserve the strong trading and cultural partnerships between the Netherlands and the UK, he said.

Brexit is causing as much uncertainty in the Netherlands as it is in the UK, with traders concerned about the possibility of extra customs procedures or import tariffs, said Mr Heddema.
