The lack of clarity on Brexit stirrs frustration among Welsh farmers

Hybu Cig Cymru (Meat Promotion Wales) is ready to step up its across-supply chain leadership and deliver comprehensive support for Wales’ red meat industry for the period of considerable adjustment that will be needed following Brexit, HCC Chairman, Kevin Roberts, said during a meeting with industry representatives. "It is vital that HCC delivers the leadership required to survive and sustain in these turbulent times and maximise all available resources into a programme of dynamic delivery. Leadership to bind, build and buttress the supply chain to provide protection from the potential storms ahead and then to encourage, innovate, create, develop and articulate advancement, business growth and best practices to every part of our industry in every part of Wales", explained Mr Roberts.
The lack of clarity on Brexit is still frustrating for the Welsh farmers as the hard-landing scenario on the deal between the UK and the EU could represent a long hard economic winter for the red meat industry in this part of the Kingdom.
"We must protect a critical mass of production and defend the communities that are dependent on our farm business. He said the industry was still incredibly frustrated by the lack of clarity on Brexit. With just a few months to go, our vital export trade, the rock on which we have built a sustainable premium industry, is still up against a possible Hard Brexit. And the industry is stuck in the middle. A No-Deal Exit will almost inevitably mean WTO Tariffs. Let’s be clear. Tariffs mean trade turmoil and the immediate loss of a third of our lamb market. A Hard Brexit represents a long hard economic winter for our globally successful spring and summer lamb businesses", added HCC Chairman.
