Event overview

Brexit is scheduled for 29th March 2019 and yet, with the clock ticking down, there’s still no certainty on what this will really mean for food and grocery businesses in the UK and the EU.

We’ve been discussing planning for a No Deal Brexit extensively with various government departments and through our industry expert groups.

Through this free webinar we will provide:

  • Our view on what could happen next
  • How the prospect of a No Deal Brexit may affect shopper behaviour
  • The most important practical actions you should take now to limit business disruption
