The Team at Nutshell were delighted to welcome Mr John Glen, MP for Salisbury and South Wiltshire, on Friday 22nd June 2018, to show how much our trade is interwoven with Europe and to discuss the potential impact Brexit could have on the business and local economy.
As Economic Secretary to the Treasury and City Minister, John was very interested to understand the commercial and economic implications of Brexit first hand and reassured us that the Chancellor was fully aware of the need of continuing free movement of goods with Europe. It was excellent to be able to give him a tour of our new offices and factory, and meet all our staff.
It was such a beautiful day, that before he dashed off to meet with Prince Charles in Salisbury City Centre, we even took the opportunity to capture a company photo! What a great team!
Following his visit to Nutshell, Mr John Glen said he’d “Spent an informative time this morning at Nutshell Portions on Churchfields Industrial Estate in Salisbury. It’s a fantastic local business exporting single portion food and beverage products across the European Union. Managing Partner Jonathan Moffat showed me round the offices and factory floor where I got to meet all the staff. We then had a useful meeting where he set out his views on Brexit and stressed to me the importance of maintaining frictionless trade with our partners in the European Union. I assured him that the government is doing all it can to ensure that we have a deal that respects the referendum result but continues to deliver a future trading relationship that is as seamless as possible.”
