Accessing the UK Market – Now & After Brexit

Wednesday June 6, 2018: 14.00 – 17.00

Learn more about opportunities to trade with the UK and how to meet regulatory requirements with a tailor-made seminar, held by the Fresh Produce Consortium.

“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 is looking at the potential impacts and opportunities for future trading post-Brexit with some useful insights from key speakers.”

Attendees will have the chance to hear how successful exporting countries have identified opportunities to develop and sell their products on the UK market and how they have achieved significant growth in exports of fresh produce to the UK.

The seminar includes contributions from experts from the UK regulatory authority, market analysts, the fresh produce industry and successful exporters:

    • Learn from the UK authority how to meet plant health requirements

    • Find out how to check compliance with statutory pesticide residues levels

    • Explore the future landscape for Brexit trading relationships with economic, policy and legal analysis of the potential impacts of changing trading terms

    • Learn about global commercial opportunities from highly successful and experienced exporters

    • Finish the afternoon networking with attendees and speakers at the exclusive LPS Opening Cocktail Reception, the UK’s produce networking event of the year with 800+ attendees
