British Frozen Food Federation Brexit support

London, UK: The British Frozen Food Federation is advising on Brexit issues, with alerts containing information from government or other forums.

The alerts are available to non-members. In addition, a series of webinars is planned to support members and the wider industry to help ease the current ‘pain points’ caused by Brexit.

The next webinar – Brexit eight months in: Transport and Groupage Support Session’- takes place on Tuesday 21 September at 10am.

The BFFF will be joined by Peter Bambury from Roswel Spedition and Robert Hardy, operations director at EOR. They will share best practice case studies and provide advice on how to prepare for what’s to come.

Further support content, courtesy of technology-based freight forwarder Unsworth, will follow in October.

Non-members can attend online events live, but full BFFF members will have exclusive access to additional expert guidance, further articles and recordings in the BFFF webinar library.

Richard Harrow, chief executive of BFFF, said: “As issues surrounding our exit from the EU continue to cause disruption there are more questions than answers coming out of government. We recently held a round table with members which uncovered some shocking problems arising from Brexit. While most of those who took part are being affected by the well-documented driver shortage, food businesses are also struggling to fill managerial and skilled technical positions, as well as facing increased shipping costs.

“It is time for government to recognise that in order to fuel a post-Covid economic boom, the food industry must have access to an available workforce in all areas of the supply chain. As a Federation we want to support our members and the whole industry as much as possible by sharing knowledge and providing a platform to ask questions about the latest government changes and advice.

“Our team works closely with multiple forums and working groups which address many issues relating to Brexit, and as such have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. I think this will prove an incredibly useful tool as we continue to navigate Brexit.”
