“To influence food exports – confirms Coldiretti – is bureaucratic and administrative difficulties Linked to Britain’s exit from the European Union, adding to the effects of the Covid pandemic with the resumption of catering, making it more difficult for the new spread of the so-called Indian version of Covid.”
“Major embarrassments, for those exporting to the UK – Coldiretti points out – concern Customs procedures It also relates to the increase in transportation costs due to delays and increased controls. Difficulties threatening the 3.4 billion euros of annual agro-food exports made in Italy with the overseas country ranked fourth among Belpaese’s trading partners in the field of food and beverage after Germany, France and the United States.”
“After wine, with Prosecco at the fore, second best-selling Italian food products in Great Britain – Coldiretti continues – tomato derivatives, but the role of pasta, cheese, cured meats, olive oil, Grana Padano flow and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Also affecting Italian food sales are violations of the Brexit agreements – and Coldiretti’s elimination – which risks favoring food and beverages arriving in the EU that do not comply with EU safety standards but also fakes and imitations of protected materials. Food products, from Parmesan cheese to Chianti, preferred by their liberation.”
