UK Curry Connect
UK Curry Connect or UKCC was borne out of the crisis facing the providers of the UK’s favourite food and the lack of any workable solution being offered by Government and other industry trade bodies. Although the situation is not straight forward, the main issue has to do with staffing and skills shortages. It has also become evident that the business environment for a lot of restaurants and takeaways has worsened substantially with the market and lack of profitability causing many establishments to go out of business completely. The prospect of Brexit and the recent unprecedented coronavirus pandemic has further clouded the issues surrounding the economy.
Positive action needs to be taken to address these issues and UKCC is determined to campaign on behalf of its members to find solutions and ensure that the government and the nation at large is aware of the problems it faces. The restaurant industry in the UK is reported to be worth £52 billion and the fast food providers are estimated to turnover in excess of £32 billion. UK Indian food providers contribute a significant amount towards the economy employing 100,000+ people and billions in taxes to Her Majesty’s Treasury. We believe it is time that we were listened to properly and acceptable solutions found. UKCC is now one of the leading voices for the industry.
The team at UKCC is made up of experienced professionals and influencers that not only know our industry well, but are passionate and positive about its future. They are not afraid to disrupt and hold politicians to account. They are creative and forward thinking and they seek collaborations that will mutually benefit the industry. They work on projects that will have impact on social responsibility and the wider community. They also take great pride in leading by example.
