Artisan and small scale food producers face big hurdles dealing with the law, which is complex and ever changing and carries big bills when you get it wrong. What may seem reasonable for industrial and commodity food producers becomes a heavy and unreasonable burden for the small scale food producer.

This is where Artisan Food Law comes in to provide support and help navigate a way through the minefield.

Vote 'Remain' on Thursday

It may come as a surprise to those who have read all the criticism of EU regulations to be found elsewhere on this blog, but remaining a part of the EU is by far the better choice for small scale food producers. The UK must remain an integral and key player in the future of Europe following the vote this Thursday.

The debate around what the UK contributes to the EU is well-rehearsed, suffice to say here that it amounts to just 11.8p a day to the average taxpayer or 0.37% of GDP in 2015. Contrast this with all the benefits derived from membership and it soon starts to look good value for money. Furthermore, the potential for change were the UK to leave the EU is almost entirely illusory - there would be no bonfire of regulations.

A vote to leave would be hugely damaging to many small scale food producers, many may never recover, the burgeoning independent food scene in the UK would be dealt a serious blow. Much better to work on what we have than throw it all away.
