Bendy Banana

“Bendy Banana” is part of the project on Brexit, regulation and food, supported by the Carnegie Trust (2020). When Mary Irwin, who worked on this project with me, and I started working on this project, we realized that banana regulation, which the EU introduced in 1994, is one of the most visible, while at the same time one of the most ridiculed regulations related to Brexit discourse. It often appears in the media to frame any other discussion about EU regulation as unnecessary and silly, therefore, by association, representing the EU as something not be trusted or be part of. Our first paper in which we discuss this can be found here.
