    The Brexit Food Summit, is being held on Sep 13th in Citywest Exhibition Centre.

    As most industry professionals are aware by now Brexit presents the most serious threat to Irish food industry in the history of the State. With 40% of our food exports going to the UK, no other Member State and no other sector is as exposed in these negotiations. The short-term uncertainty has led to the depreciation of sterling, putting serious pressure on Irish farm gate prices and exports.

    The UK is a high value market, sharing similar consumer preferences to Irish consumers. Irish food processors have developed systems of production and specifications to match market requirements in the UK. Both producers and processors have invested significant resources in meeting the EU’s world-leading standards of production. Ireland is the only Member State to share a land border with the UK, and every year thousands of animals and huge volumes of agricultural produce cross the border with Northern Ireland for further finishing or for processing, as part of a complex supply chain.

    This event which is hosted by Credit Risk Brokers and supported by Atradius will bring together the key stakeholders from the UK & Ireland responsible for charting a safe and sustainable path through the choppy Brexit waters that lie ahead. The Irish government through supporting organisations such as Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland, IDA and many local enterprise networks are providing advice and financial support. This response must be a multi faceted one with elements covering developing new markets, financial supports and advice on becoming more efficient, leaner and creating added value where possible. If you or your company is affected by the decision of the UK to leave the EU this summit will provide answers to many of the issues facing the food industry.
