The decision to leave the EU has caused a shock wave across the UK, Europe and elsewhere in the world. The full impact it will have on business is yet unknown but the decision to leave the European Union has already had a major effect on the value of sterling. We set out to understand the issues and challenges businesses in the food packaging and food manufacturing sectors are facing, or planning for, in the face of the expected changes in our marketplace. It goes without saying that the longer businesses are in the grips of market uncertainty around the exit process, the longer it will take for businesses to recover from the likely impact.
We now have the pleasure of announcing the results of our BREXIT survey carried out amongst professionals in the food packaging and food manufacturing sectors. The results will hopefully give you some guidance on the key issues, the priorities and how other people in our industry are preparing for this. Key challenges highlighted by the respondents include:
– Coping with volatility of the currency markets
– Managing the Supply Chain
– Dealing with the regulatory changes
– Maintaining access to talent in the single market
Or if you would like to discuss the impact of BREXIT on your business why don’t you come and visit us at our stand G33 at the Packaging Innovations Show March 1-2 at the NEC in Birmingham?
