An FDF spokesperson said:
“For a transition period to be useful to business, they must know the shape of the deal and the future UK-EU relationship. Even with a promised end point, 21 months would have been incredibly challenging for many businesses. A 14 month transition period falls far short of what is required to ensure the UK's food and drink supply chain will be ready.”
