EU-28: European Meat Trade Association Publishes Brexit Impact Study

The European Livestock and Meat Trade Association (UECBV) published a report assessing the impact on the EU meat sector in the event a hard Brexit leads to application of WTO MFN tariffs on EU-UK meat trade. Under this scenario, UECBV concludes that the impact on the EU meat sector would be significantly greater than the Russian import ban from 2014 leading to potential loss of 32,000 jobs in the EU meat industry. Ireland and Denmark would take the hardest blows as their respective meat exports to the UK amount to 56 and 25 percent of their total meat exports.
