EU Exit: impact on the ornamentals industry, sourcing and retaining labour
Access to a large pool of seasonal labour remains an issue, post-Brexit, for horticulture. Schemes have been created to try and address this, but the key one is primarily aimed at the edibles industry rather than the ornamentals industry. For many businesses, sourcing labour (both seasonal and skilled) is one of the biggest issues impacting performance currently.
In this second Brexit-themed webinar, Ali Capper, NFU summaries the current ways of accessing seasonal labour, David Swales, AHDB explores what the new rules for overseas labour mean for the industry, David Trehane, CropDesk discusses the future of app-based labour recruitment and Francis Mizuro, Volmary Ltd and Mark Clark Grampian Growers Ltd provide personal perspectives on sourcing and managing labour so far this year post-Brexit.
The webinar will finish with a Q&A session to permit delegates to pose questions to all the speakers, so please come along with topics you need clarifying.
