Bord Bia would like to invite you to the launch of our Brexit Barometer 2019: Results & Actions event taking place on Wednesday 26th June in Bord Bia's Thinking House, Clanwilliam Court, Lower Mount St, Dublin 2.
This will be an opportunity for companies to hear from the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed T.D. and Group Commercial Director of Musgraves, Sharon Buckley on Brexit preparedness. We will also be sharing the results of the Brexit Barometer 2019, Bord Bia's new support services, designed in light of these results, and we also will be sharing new UK grocery insights from Retail Economics CEO, Richard Lim.
The afternoon session will focus on detailed customs readiness and how best to manage SPS and other controls from the Department of Agriculture’s Brexit Unit. This event will provide an opportunity for businesses to ensure that they are taking all the necessary steps to prepare for whatever challenges Brexit may bring, through peer-to-peer learning and engaging with experts.
