British Farmer Expands Fruit Business to China over Brexit Uncertainty

By in

While Mrs May’s immigration and migrant labour policy is still on its way, a harvest of blueberry and raspberry growing, which was already planned ahead a year ago, had to be relocated to China in order to find available pickers.

In its letter to the prime minster, the founder of Haygrove, Mr. Davison, warned that agriculture cannot be exported and the need of substantial reduction of the workforce, lead no other option but to turn to China for investment.

Clearly, the relocation to Yunnan offered understanding, confidence and positivity to the business compared to Mrs May missing the realities of the basic food business.
