A video interview with BBC reporter Steph McGovern discusses the lack of factual information is hindering manufacturing businesses to make decisions.
I have attended a few Food and Drink exhibitions myself recently and businesses are still widely pushing the export of their products from the UK.
However, as with the general public, business leaders are also being left in the dark on the pros and cons.
Many Food manufacturing business leaders are delaying investment until after the EU referendum on June 23, according to TV business broadcaster Steph McGovern. “It’s the uncertainty … leading to investment decisions being put off because people are waiting to hear what’s going to happen,” said McGovern “And that’s what business hates – uncertainty.” Speaking after chairing a panel debate on food and drink industry trends at Foodex, McGovern said there was a chronic lack of factual information about the business implications of remaining within the EU or voting to leave in the referendum next month. “The biggest issues are to do with the lack of information in terms of reality checks about the arguments we are hearing on both sides [of the EU membership debate],” said McGovern.
