Over the last few weeks, we have written many times about the possible impact of the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislation will have on members.
We have urged members to engage with their local MP to highlight how dramatically the proposed legislation will impact our member businesses.
We were, therefore, delighted to hear that Andy Waterfall, Technical and Development Director, of Freeworld Foods Limited, has written to his MP the Rt Hon John Hayes to express his concerns over the impact of EPR. Andy has duly received a response and has kindly agreed to let us share his letter and the response.
We would urge other members to follow the same action as it is only by a collective response will Government realise just what level of damage this proposed legislation will have on our industry.
If any member has already written to their local MP then please let us know.
