The NFU is aware of increasing pressure points on labour availability in the wider supply chain. Haulage, drivers, process and packing and hospitality are all areas of concern, with haulage/driver shortages being particularly acute.

How is the NFU working for members on this issue?

The NFU has been co-ordinating with other trade bodies and relevant contacts to address these issues due to the on-farm impact. We've also been raising these issues with government.

If you have been personally affected, you can help amplify the message that we are sending into government by contacting your local MP through this online form at, setting out how labour shortages in the wider supply chain have been impacting your on-farm production. You may also wish to set out the effects of any on farm labour shortages you are experiencing since the end of free movement in order to help amplify our existing messages regarding labour needs at a production level.
