The government continues to prepare for the UK’s exit from the European Union on 31st October.

To prepare businesses for this Melton Borough Council has partnered with the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Leicester and Leicestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) to host a free 'Ready for Brexit' event aimed at businesses within the food and drink sector.

This event is open to all businesses in the East Midlands area and will provide them with information on, and signposting to, the support and advice available to help businesses with preparing for Brexit.

Councillor Leigh Higgins, the portfolio holder for Growth and Prosperity said ‘It is essential that businesses in the East Midlands are as prepared as they can be for Brexit. Britain is an outward looking nation and business prosperity is the key to our future success. I encourage any business who wants to learn more and receive support to attend and to take advantage of any opportunities presented’.

The event will be held at the Melton Borough Council Offices (Burton St, Melton Mowbray LE13 1GH) from 9.00am-10.30am, 15 October. Breakfast and refreshments will be provided.
