What are the threats and opportunities for your business after the UK voted to leave the European Union?

Uncertainty is the watchword now the UK has voted to leave the EU.

Euromonitor International predicts confectionery will be the worst hit UK food & drink sector for sales volumes after the vote, while European Confectionery Association CAOBISCO says its members were “disappointed” by the Brexit vote and concerned about potential trade barriers.

But little is known about the consequences of this unprecedented event.

So we want to gauge the views of the global confectionery sector on the positives and negatives of Brexit for your candy business.

In this anonymous survey, we ask readers how Brexit will impact business, supply chains, investment and legislation.

The survey will close on July 11, after which we will publish the results, to discover readers' sentiments of the confectionery sector post-Brexit vote.
