Bord Bia CEO Tara McCarthy launched a newly refreshed Bord Bia Brexit training programme in the early summer, including workshops on Customs, Currency Risk and Supply Chain and also Bord Bia’s new way of working to support companies in the post Brexit world.
“’Plan to Grow’ is the culmination of 12 months development work by the Bord’s internal teams. “My vision is that Bord Bia will now use our unique understanding of the Irish food industry’s needs to provide a focused framework of support that will deliver robust marketing strategies for our clients.”
“In the two years since the UK voted to leave the European Union, Bord Bia has taken the view that the Irish food industry must plan, act and take ownership, where possible, of the risks it poses.
The Brexit Barometer has been a central and insightful resource in this regard. While uncertainty remains, I can say with confidence that Bord Bia is proactively working to fully support companies who are responding to the challenges of Brexit and building their potential for better trade outcomes in the future.”
