Catering jobs are set to be available in the UK for the first time in 2019-19.
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills said the move will create an employment opportunity for people from the UK to the UK, with an estimated 1,200 jobs created by 2019-2020.
“This will allow us to increase employment opportunities in sectors that previously had no choice but to rely on EU migration to fill vacancies,” said an employment minister.
“We will be opening up our supply chains to make sure that more food and beverage businesses can be established here.”
In 2020, the government will introduce a number of measures to increase the UK’s food supply chain and support the UK-Mexico food trade, as part of its efforts to ensure that food comes from UK-grown produce, including beef, chicken and pork.
The department said that the new jobs will help support the growing number of restaurants, catering, restaurant workers, bar staff, catering students, and other food professionals in the region.
