Seasonal Worker Scheme pre-season grower guidance for 2023

During autumn 2022 key stakeholders from retail, food manufacture, produce marketing desks, growers, scheme operators, government and civil society came together through 2 roundtables organised by British Retail Consortium (BRC), Food Network for Ethical Trade (FNET), Association for Labour Providers (ALP) and the Fresh Produce Consortium (FPC).

These roundtables identified a number of workstreams to improve 2023 season. This is the first of a number of outputs of this work.

The brief attached guidance below has been provided specifically for farms who use workers sourced through the seasonal worker scheme (SWS).
