The UK market is a magnet for international trade. It represents an exciting, but sometimes daunting opportunity for exporters – especially since the referendum last June when the UK decided to withdraw from the European Union. Article 50 was triggered in March 2017 and the UK now has two years to negotiate its withdrawal. How will Brexit affect how your company does business with the UK while its withdrawal is negotiated and after Brexit when the UK has departed the EU? How will you access and supply the UK market? Hosted and chaired by the Fresh Produce Consortium, the “Accessing the UK Market Now and After Brexit‘ workshop and seminar programme will guide potential suppliers through the commercial nuances, regulatory framework and entry points of the UK fresh produce market during this complicated period. Preliminary Agenda – subject to change
