The implications of Brexit for UK consumers, and food and drink producers and retailers

Projections for the impact of Brexit on the UK food and drink industry are many and varied, leaving consumers, producers, and retailers uncertain of what Brexit will mean for them in the short and long term. Challenging economic conditions – affecting consumer spending confidence and spending power, and at least some interruption of the UK’s food and drink balance of trade, are to be expected, but what is less clear is what this will mean on a day-to-day basis for consumers and the businesses that serve them.

Combining expertise from its Retail and Consumer practices, GlobalData will decode the post-Brexit future for UK food and drink. Taking a consumer-centric view, this webinar will explore the some likely scenarios in key areas such as food and drink sourcing, sustainability, food standards, and pricing.

Looking across the food and drink supply chain, the webinar will investigate the likely winners and losers in a post-Brexit economy, what this means for UK consumers, and what companies can do to manage the impact.

Join us at 3pm GMT on Tuesday 20th February to better understand the likely impact of Brexit on the UK food and drink market and gain insight into strategies to help your business win in a post-Brexit environment.
