A leading supplier of hygiene and safety solutions to the food industry is urging UK food manufacturers to ensure they prepare their businesses for the potential impact of ‘Brexit’.
Needlers, the Food Industry Specialist is working with its customers to forecast how the vote in June to leave the European Union could affect things like supply chain, staffing and spending. As Needlers Sales Director, Rob Russell explains:
“There are a number of ways we have been preparing our customers for the possible impact of ‘Brexit’, but our approach has always been to support our customers with their key challenges.
Regardless of how the vote went in June, the food industry was already a difficult market, so providing the correct products at the right price, and crucially with the right level of support and expertise has long been our focus.”
Working closely with technical, hygiene, health and safety and procurement teams at some of the UK’s leading food manufacturers, The Food Industry Specialist has been supporting its customers in making improvements to food safety and technical compliance, while also reducing cost.
Operations Director, Darren Glew agrees that a ‘Brexit’ strategy requires a combined approach:
“We’ve called on our team’s knowledge of the food industry to be pro-active when it comes to product rationalisation, and we’ve also been providing free, innovative digital services to our customers, including bespoke training videos and an electronic visitor sign-in system.
Staff training and supply chain complications have been highlighted among the possible implications for the food industry as the UK prepares to leave the EU. It’s impossible to know exactly what will happen, but we’re convinced that food manufacturers should be looking to do more than just reduce costs, in order to be fully ‘Brexit-proof’.”
