FUW puts spotlight on Brexit requirements for farmers in special webinar

The Farmers’ Union of Wales is hosting a special webinar to shed light on what technical and practical changes are required for farming businesses in Wales from 1 January 2021 onwards.

The webinar takes place on Thursday, 17 December at 7pm via Zoom.

Helping to explain these changes, and translate them into practicalities, are representatives from British Meat Processors Association, Food Standards Agency, Hybu Cig Cymru and Welsh Government. The webinar is  chaired by FUW President Glyn Roberts, with closing remarks from FUW Head of Policy Nick Fenwick. 

FUW Policy Officer Teleri Fielden said: “There are significant changes occurring to the trading arrangements with UK agriculture's biggest export customer-the EU as well as new ways of working for all sections of the food supply chain in the UK. 

“This means farmers need to be aware of the impacts of these changes for their businesses. Things such as the non-tariff barriers we hear so much won’t just impact ports after December - they will affect every stage of food production, so it is important for farmers to understand potential implications for their businesses. 

“We will be joined by a team of experts who will help shed light on some of these complex issues and we look forward to welcoming you to the event.”
