Access the UK market - now and after Brexit

12 June 2018

Delegates from across the globe attending the London Produce Show had the opportunity to learn more about trading with the UK and how to meet regulatory requirements, thanks to a tailor-made seminar held by FPC as part of the London Produce Show.

“Exporters need to know what regulatory requirements and customer standards need to be met to access the UK market, and to know when any additional control measures are coming into place,” said Nigel Jenney, Chief Executive Officer of the Fresh Produce Consortium.

“As well as providing advice on getting your products to the UK market now, this seminar looked at the potential impacts and opportunities for future trading post-Brexit with some useful insights from key speakers.”

The seminar was held in the afternoon of Wednesday 6 June, and included contributions from experts from the UK regulatory authority, market analysts, the fresh produce industry and successful exporters:
