Do you think lower tariffs on food import will make any difference to cost in the shop. I can't see shops reducing prices just because it's cheaper to buy.
Supermarkets have strong competition and low margins. So yes, I do expect them to lower prices.

Also there will likely be a shift from imported to domestically produced goods which would further support the farming sector and help trade balance.
