EPSOM, England, Jan. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — With the transition period starting and the food & beverage industry still unclear as to the future alignment of the UK and EU regulatory machines, Leatherhead recommends members take advantage of their membership services to keep abreast of Brexit developments through 2020.
Leatherhead membership benefits include:
Free places on Brexit events such as a webinar on 27 February
Dedicated Brexit monthly newsletter which summarises key Brexit developments for certain member companies
Discounts on scenario planning workshops to prepare for possible Brexit outcomes
Email/telephone on demand access to skilled, experienced regulatory consultants to submit ad hoc Brexit queries
“Leatherhead is well positioned to assist members through 2020 on all things Brexit,” says Mark Butcher, Commercial Director, Leatherhead Food Research. “The Brexit challenge is unique and whilst much of the industry was expecting regulatory alignment after the transition period, recent developments suggest that may be less certain. As we get towards the end of 2020 and the specifics of any divergence become clearer, it is likely that regulatory services will be in high demand. We are therefore encouraging our members to be sure they have anticipated and planned ahead for both the most likely and significant scenarios.”
