We are working together with The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) and FloraCulture International (FCI) to organise two webinars preparing the global ornamental horticultural industry for Brexit.
We invite plant breeders, growers, traders, auctions, distributors, retailers and the landscape sector to two webinars on Wednesday 2 December and Friday 4 December designed to help the horticultural supply chain understand the changes that will come into effect from 1 January 2021.
The first webinar is run in association with the UK’s Horticultural Trades Association (HTA). The HTA notes that the UK imports about £350m-worth of plants a year (excluding cut flowers). This figure demonstrates the need for practical preparation on both sides as the EU support mechanisms that have been in place for more than 40 years, and more importantly during the Coronavirus pandemic, won’t be there after 31 December.
Key industry stakeholders will share their research, knowledge, and insight into what the future holds and how the industry needs to prepare, whether or not there is a Brexit deal agreed.
