On 31 January 2020 the United Kingdom officially left the European Union. We are now in a transition period, during which the future partnership will be negotiated. We hope a suitable agreement between the EU and UK will be reached by the end of the year.
In this important moment in the EU and the UK history, the European Flavour Association (EFFA) and the UK Flavour Association (UKFA), would like to emphasise our commitment to working closely together with our friends and colleagues across Europe, as we have always done, for the benefit of the industry and consumers alike.
The flavour industry is highly integrated across Europe on many levels: legislation, employment, and know-how. We therefore hope for regulatory consistency and eased bureaucracy to facilitate existing and future business and trade between the EU and UK.
And of course, we will always keep celebrating together the variety and enjoyment that flavour brings!
Antoine Kastler, EFFA President, and James Smith, Chairman of the UK Flavour Association
