Brexit reality bites: The new dawn of trade friction

January 9, 2021, RTE

Maree Gallagher spoke with RTE about food exports under the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. Ms. Gallagher says, “The rules of origin are key to international trade. Where does something originate? The way you determine the origin of a product is where the last substantial process happened.”

She adds, “If you're sending cheese to Donnybrook Fair or Supervalu and if it's loaded on a truck in Paris and ends up in Dublin that's absolutely fine. But if you're stopping off in the UK and unpacking it and repacking it, and keeping it in a distribution warehouse as part of the just-in-time delivery then it’s different.”
