"Up to 90,000 seasonal workers are required to pick the British fresh produce harvest. Over the last few years, over 95% of these labourers have been sourced from abroad, but despite this enormous migrant influx, labour shortages have sky-rocketed recently. Now, due to a less welcoming political landscape and C-19, this crucial external labour supply has effectively been cut off. A chronic lack of frontline food key workers poses the very real prospect of a critical shortage of fresh produce for the British consumer this summer."
