July 13: What Brexit Means for the Global Food System

On June 23, voters in Great Britain called on the nation to withdraw from the European Union (EU). While it may take years before Great Britain formally leaves the EU, the potential repercussions are already

generating political and economic uncertainty across many sectors, including agriculture.

On Wednesday, July 13, the Farm Foundation Forum will explore the topic:

What Brexit Means for the Global Food System. Perspectives on  the topic will be presented by:
  • Mike Dwyer, Chief Economist for the U.S. Feed Grains Council,
  • David Green, President of Greenhouse Communications, and
  • John Dardis, Senior Vice President of U.S. Corporate Affairs for Glanbia, and the former Agricultural Attache at the Irish Embassy, Washington, D.C.

Farm Foundation President Constance Cullman will moderate the discussion. After comments by the panelists, the floor will be opened for questions and discussion.

The Forum will be 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT in the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club, 519 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C. A free, live audiocast will also be available.
