A new opportunity to trade with the UK

March

18

2021

Ticket price: This event is free of charge.

FPC has organised an online event for embassies and high commissions of countries who wish to trade fresh produce including cut flowers with the UK. The event will provide essential information regarding the new trading requirement since Brexit. It is now more crucial than ever to build strong and effective trading relationships as we negotiate the future of the UK outside the European Union.

This webinar will provide a comprehensive insight to the new official requirements and share the thoughts of a major UK retailer. The UK is a diverse marketplace and offers new opportunities for established and future trading partners.

FPC will be giving advice on supplying the dynamic UK market and looking at the potential impacts and opportunities for a new trading relationship post-Brexit.
