Difficile de dire quelles seront les conséquences à moyen terme du choix britannique.
Toutefois, l’idée que le Brexit aurait d’importantes conséquences économiques et budgétaires, aussi bien pour le Royaume-Uni que pour les autres États européens, fait aujourd’hui consensus. « Dans l’agroalimentaire, les secteurs les plus touchés seraient notamment le vin et les produits laitiers, qui contribuent très nettement au solde commercial français », affirme l’Ania (Association nationale des industries alimentaires). « Il est toujours triste de perdre un partenaire. Mais le Royaume-Uni a toujours été dans et hors de l’UE », constate Jean Arthuis, député européen (UDI - Alliance des démocrates et libéraux pour l’Europe), président de la commission des budgets du Parlement européen (PE). Dans le marché unique mais sans monnaie unique. Pas dans l’espace Schengen… Ce vote clarifie la situation, les Britanniques ont toujours combattu la Pac. Agriculteurs britanniques dans la Pac jusqu’à 2019.

British veterinary groups acknowledge the “significant impact” of leaving the European Union on their profession, but vow to work closely with Government and international partners to ensure high standards of animal welfare are maintained.
The British Veterinary Association (BVA) said the referendum result will affect vets in terms of regulation, education, and workforce planning, but also in terms of animal welfare, research, surveillance, and animal movements. "BVA will work hard to ensure the voice of the veterinary profession is heard during the negotiation and discussions that will now begin, in order to secure the best possible outcomes for our profession and for animal health and welfare in the UK,” said BVA president, Sean Wensley.

HERALD SCOTLAND 06/04/16 Defra minister: Brexit would cut red tape for farmers.
Leaving the European Union would allow Britain to "take control" and cut red tape for farmers, a Defra minister has said.
Minister of state for farming, food and the marine environment George Eustice, who is backing the Vote Leave campaign, argued farming would still be supported "to the same level, possibly even more than now," in the event of a Brexit. He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I think the crucial thing for farmers is if we were to leave the EU and take control we would be able to get rid of the very complex bureaucratic system of cross compliance regulations that we have now, lots of pointless administration would go, we would reduce the regulatory burdens on farmers.
"We'd be able to put in place far more coherent policy making, so that we could support farmers in the right way and we could help farmers mitigate risk, we could help support science and technology to improve (competitiveness). " THE GUARDIAN 15/06/16 Bees would suffer from Brexit, say campaigners. Brexit would be bad for Britain’s bees, according to campaigners, who point to the UK government’s opposition to EU bans on harmful pesticides and the desire of figures in the Leave camp to cut nature protections.
Bees and other pollinators are vital to producing food but have been harmed by loss of habitat, disease and pesticides. THE GUARDIAN 21/06/16 How Brexit could damage our health. Much of the EU debate is conducted at the level of insults and unsupported claims and assertions.
But, if we care to look, there are many areas where it is not difficult to identify the effects of Brexit. Health and health services are one such area – and Brexit could be devastating. European health insurance cards, which have for many years guaranteed emergency treatment for Britons wherever they are in the EU would of course disappear in case of Brexit – leaving the UK government to negotiate new arrangements with each individual country. While this is widely known, the right of EU citizens to undergo any kind of healthcare anywhere in the EU is perhaps less familiar – possibly because it is the result of much more recent EU legislation. THE GUARDIAN 16/01/16 Brexit a 'nightmare scenario' for UK food and drink business.
Brexit could create a nightmare scenario for Britain’s food and drink industry, where companies have to abide by EU food regulations if they want to export to the EU but have no say over the regulations.
As David Cameron starts negotiations with 27 member states over reform, nothing has been discussed about what trade relationship Britain would have with the EU if it left. Most assume a deal along the lines of that negotiated by Norway would apply – it meets EU food rules in order to export to the EU. This means if Britain’s food and drinks firms want to continue to export to the 450 million strong single market, they will still need to meet EU requirements.
Currently the UK has voting power in committee procedure, used to agree many EU food rules in Brussels, and in the council of the European Union, where member state ministers vote. Only those with a seat on the committee really know what is going on. This has happened on the issue of product health claims recently. THE GUARDIAN 24/02/16 UK environment ministers at odds over Brexit impact on farming. Leaving the European Union would pay an £18bn a year “Brexit dividend” which would allow the UK to spend £2bn on farming and the environment, farming minister, George Eustice, has said.
Eustice sought to reassure farmers at the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) annual conference that “without a shadow of doubt” they would continue to receive the subsidies for farming and environmental measures from an independent UK as they are currently paid through the EU’s agriculture policy. The EU referendum has split the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), with environment secretary, Liz Truss, backing the campaign to remain, but her junior minister for food, farming and the marine environment declaring support for leaving the bloc.

It is written to raise issues; to invite academics and civil society working on food matters to consider how their work fits this momentous issue; and to aid informed decisions. FOOD MANUFACTURE 15/01/16 Brexit: four key questions for the UK food industry. The questions, which emerged in a debate on EU membership at the Oxford Farming Conference last week, focused on whether EU institutions help or hinder the food sector’s performance, the UK’s access to European consumers, EU membership and international trade deals and the UK government's support for the food and farming industry.
On opposing sides of the argument were former environment secretary Owen Paterson and EU agriculture commissioner Phil Hogan. Read how each respectively set out his case, in an attempt to persuade conference delegates of why Britons should vote in favour of quitting the union or opt to retain membership. While acknowledging the decision to reject or retain EU membership was a matter for the British people, Hogan argued the balance of benefits, both for the UK and the EU, lay in this country’s continued membership. Help or hinder? 1. Paterson: “Agriculture and food production is hampered by our membership of the Common Agricultural Policy [CAP]. 2. 3. FOOD MANUFACTURE 24/06/16 Brexit: mixed response from food and drink industry. Greencore ceo Patrick Coveney tweeted: “Incredibly disappointing but that's democracy – need calm heads now to steer Britain & EU through very tricky waters.”
Paul Wilkinson, chair of the National Skills Academy and former chair of RHM and Thorntons, said Brexit would bring new opportunities for UK food and drink manufacturers. FG INSIGHT 15/01/16 The Great Brexit debate - is UK agriculture better off in or out? On both occasions, Mr Paterson sought to address one of the farming industry’s greatest fears over Brexit. Pointing out the UK’s net contribution to the EU, £9.8 billion, is more than three times the current UK CAP budget of about £2.9 billion, he claimed a post-EU UK Government could afford to ‘pay as much, if not more than the CAP’. UK politicians would be ‘idiotic’ to take an axe to CAP funding given its importance to farming and, would, initially at least, maintain it at current levels, he predicted, pointing to relatively high levels of farm support in non-EU countries Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. The big benefit, however, would the ability for the UK Government and industry, freed from burdens and complexities of the CAP, to develop a ‘sensible’ farm policy, targeting the funds in a far more effective manner.
Payments, for example, could be used to reward upland farmers for the public goods they provide, with lowland production ‘broadly left to the market’. FG INSIGHT 24/06/16 An exhilarating time to be at Defra - George Eustice hails Brexit vote. Farming Minister George Eustice has outlined his thoughts on the historic vote to leave the EU and sought to reassure farmers about the implications. Farming Minister George Eustice has sought to assure farmers they have nothing to fear from Brexit, which he insisted would be managed by Government in a calm and considered manner. The shock vote to leave the EU has sparked a degree of panic in the market, resulting in a significant fall in the value of sterling on Friday, as investors and businesses fear a period of huge uncertainty ahead. For farmers, while many backed Brexit in order to escape the grip of Brussels regulation, the decision has generated concern over issues like farm support, trade and access to seasonal labour.
