    UK farmers call to make food security a priority for a post Brexit scenario

    NFU president Minette Batters said government must show farmers and members of the public that our ability to produce food in this country is truly important.

    British farmers have called on the government to make food security a top priority on the day the country’s cupboards would run bare if households relied only on British produce. A long-term decline in self-sufficiency that has stagnated at around 60% in recent years means around three quarters of the shortfall is imported from the rest of the European Union.
