Are we finally feeling positive about Brexit?

  • March 22, 2019 /

With the IFE currently underway, and the Brexit deadline date up in the air at the moment, the mood at the event has been surprisingly positive considering the doom and gloom the main media outlets seems to be determined to feed us.

The general outlook of having real opportunities for growth has been the topic on many speakers’ lips. It was mentioned that many companies felt that growth over the coming years was highly likely, as long as they managed to stay flexible and reactive. When speaking as part of the ‘Eating British – Opportunities post Brexit’ seminar, David Gilgur, Founder and Managing Director at Vimes Consulting, reminded the London audience that ‘Made in the UK’ is the 4th most trusted brand in world trading, which he feels provides a fantastic opportunity many British firms can take advantage of.

Of course, the challenges facing the industry post Brexit were not ignored, with the possibility of having to source raw ingredients from alternatives sources also discussed. This, however, was felt to be prompting real innovation in the UK food and drink industry.

Blue Cube has experienced a significant growth for the demand in temperature controlled solutions to safeguard against any potential Brexit issues. Is this something your company could benefit from? If so, please contact us on 0333 3202620
