Advice hub ensures the food industry won't make a meal of Brexit

Heard the horror stories about chlorinated chicken and how our bananas won't be bendy after Brexit?

Food industry experts Campden BRI are taking all the guess work away after launching a centralised information service to help the food industry with Brexit issues.

Campden BRI - headquartered in Chipping Campden - have created a Brexit Hub to be a one stop shop for all regulatory and legislative changes that will occur upon leaving the EU.

The Hub will cover a broad range of areas including food labelling, law, hygiene, consumer protection and nutritional information.

It has been put together using the wide-range of experts based at the firm, ones that already provide the industry with regular updates relating to food law.

Sharon Morey, the UK and EU regulatory affairs manager at Campden BRI said that from speaking with industry contacts highlighted a need for more information.

"Our regular contact with the key players in the food industry shows clearly that there is a huge amount of uncertainty on the implications of Brexit and the need for clarity," she said.

"We've put together the Brexit Hub to pull together regulatory and legislative updates from all relevant government agencies, trade bodies and relevant organisations so that food and drink companies can find all the information they need in one place."

The hub, which is a subscription service, also includes comprehensive links to the latest government updates, a section of FAQs and a comments section for any queries.

Morey added:

Morey added: "Finding information on such a wide-ranging and complex issue is a bit of a minefield.

"We're hoping that pooling the critical information in one place will help make a difficult situation that much easier for the UK food and drink industry."
