Brexit becomes a hard fact on 31 December 2020 and it will have major consequences for the production and trade of fresh produce for the UK market. Brexit will lead to new borders and higher import costs, more complex procedures and checks. This will create considerable pressure on the market and the economic consequences will be profound. This upcoming webinar offers expertise from different horticultural organisations, provides insight into the current position of the sector and will elaborate on the ways we still have to prepare ourselves.
Suse van Kleef will be the moderator. Together with the experts, she will explain with all her expertise and flair what the current situation means for the Dutch horticultural sector. She is UK correspondent for the NOS news channel and the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper since 2016. In recent years, the focus of her work has been on Brexit and its consequences for the Netherlands.
Nigel Jenney of Fresh Produce Consortium, the trade association in the United Kingdom, will share his vision on the development of the fresh produce market. How do our British trading partners view Brexit?
