It was developed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and draws on evidence submitted by non-governmental organisations, businesses, MPs and other interested parties. Pointing out that the EU is the biggest market for UK agricultural exports, accounting for 69% of total export value, the report concluded that “the internal [EU] market produced real benefits for the UK”.
