Hospitality and catering operators should take steps to ‘Brexit-proof' their businesses, buying specialist Lynx Purchasing advised.
The Autumn 2018 edition of their Market Forecast urged operators to protect the supply chain and product availability, develop recipes that do not rely on specific products, build flexibility, and staying informed of relevant market information.
"The big picture may seem daunting, but there are still steps that every operator can take to ‘Brexit-proof' their business, to an extent at least," Lynx Purchasing managing director Rachel Dobson said. "While we can't change the big picture on Brexit, there are plenty of small measures operators can implement that can add up to a big difference on the bottom line."
Lynx Purchasing added that they are already working with their customers to help put the measures in place needed to help them to trade through "what will clearly be a challenging market for some time to come."
