Food and drink manufacturers are set to benefit from a no-deal Brexit hotline, helping businesses plan for the impact of a no-deal scenario.

Launched today (7 January) by Burson Cohn & Wolfe (BCW), the hotline will provide political consultancy and crisis communications support and is being handled by a team of political and crisis communications experts.

Services provided include consultation to prepare businesses to communicate to staff around breakdowns in supply chains, temporary or permanent closures of offices or factories, and other damage to their ability to operate. The hotline also provides advice for communicating the implications of a no-deal to key stakeholders.

‘Risk of a no-deal Brexit’

Commenting on the announcement, BCW managing director of Issues and Public Affairs Nick Williams said: “The risk of a no-deal Brexit is rising every day. The Government has started to invest heavily for a no-deal scenario, which will create an extremely challenging environment for businesses everywhere.

“This is why BCW London will be leading the way in advising clients on how to approach this challenge from a communications perspective, in terms of both preparation and in the event of a no-deal.”

The BCW hotline can be reached by any business or organisation that requires short-term consultancy support in the next 82 days before Brexit (29 March) and for the period following that in a no-deal situation. Call +44 7557 313 691, or, alternatively email Oerkvg@opj-tybony.pbz​.
