He said:Paul-Fleming

“Key players from within the sector have expressed their concern about the impact that Brexit will have on the agri-food sector.

“They have expressed concern about their workers, many of whom are from European countries and play a pivotal role in the success of the industry.

“They have also expressed concern over funding for the industry and the trading implications that may be put in place as a result of Brexit.

“Many businesses are struggling to survive and are looking for guidance.

“The Brexiteers never had a plan and have offered no long-term or short-term guidance to people within the industry.

“We will continue to meet with people from within the agri-food regarding their concerns.And will continue to fight to have the decision of the people North to remain in the EU respected.”
