This paper analyses Brexit as an opportunity at the micro and niche level, and not in a macro level. The opportunities are twofold: substitution of UK exports to Europe; and shifting of a country (or company) export to the UK into other destinations. The methodology used to assess the opportunities created by Brexit evaluates the results from different perspectives based on the case study of Finland (analysis in absolute terms), the Netherlands (analysis in relative terms), and the case of the Irish company Green Isle Foods (both types of opportunities).
