The United Kingdom has left the European Union on the 31st of January 2020 and ceased to be a Member State of the European Union, which now consists of the remaining 27 Member States.

As of February 1st, 2020, enforcement date of the Withdrawal Agreement, the transitional period has started and it will last up until the 31st of December 2020. During the transitional period, the existing situation will be maintained in all aspects including the one of foodstuffs. Therefore, food trade can continue to take place with the same conditions as they applied during the period when the United Kingdom was still a Member State.

The European Union and the United Kingdom will use the transitional period to negotiate a new Partnership for the future. In this new partnership, the details of all aspects including the one of food trade between the European Union and the United Kingdom will be set.
