Planning for the future
Many of us are very concerned about what the future will hold for our industry with uncertainty around Brexit negotiations and our impending departure from the European Union next year. Add to this, a year of unseasonal weather and global trade wars, and it’s clear that we are operating in a volatile market. Yet, there are ways to mitigate these and future challenges.
Future-proof your business
Despite concerns over possible supply, logistics and the availability of labour, by taking action now, you can ensure that you continue to trade as efficiently and successfully as possible over the forthcoming months. We recommend that you:
- Protect your supply chain as much as possible by using a combination of UK products alongside ingredients and commodities from outside of the EU.
- Look beyond the sensationalist headlines and seek out the facts: the My Purchasing Partner Seasonal Report will help you track food prices and currency fluctuations.
- Stay positive – the future is unknown and could bring many new opportunities.
- Talk to us! We will respond quickly to product availability and price changes to ensure we always help you to buy better.
