On the 20th September 2018, the Government launched the Getting Ireland Brexit Ready public information campaign. The campaign is designed to help businesses understand some of the risks posed by Brexit and raise awareness of the various support measures and resources available to aid businesses in preparing for Brexit.

As part of this campaign, workshops are taking place around the country, individuals/companies with an interest in the business, agri-food/fisheries and tourism sectors are welcome to attend free of charge but are advised to register here.

Workshops have already taken place in Cork, where 500 business representatives were in attendance, and also in Galway. With the next workshop due to take place in Monaghan before the final workshop which takes place in The Convention Centre, Dublin on the 25th of October.

Bord Bia has and will be present at all of the Getting Ireland Brexit Ready workshops around the country, offering support to food and drink companies facing the challenge of Brexit and raising awareness of the support we have available, more details on these supports can be found here.
