With the ongoing Brexit plans, the curry industry in the UK has drastically fallen, as well as the decrease in staff. The impact of the Brexit plan is detrimental to running the curry houses, as this has increased the cost of doing so, thereby bringing some restaurants down. This concern has been expressed by the Bangladesh Caterers Association who initially supported the plan. The deputy secretary of the Bangladesh Caterers Association (BCA), Mr Mujibu Rahman Junue, said that the increase in the prices of ingredients is manageable compared to the unavailability of staff in the industry. He further explained that with the lack of the next generation’s interest in the business, there is a need to hire skilled workers abroad to help sustain the Indian restaurants in the UK. But the possibility of this is far-fetched as with the new rules before a chef is hired from South Asian, his employer is supposed to secure a visa for him by providing a salary of £30,000. This amount is higher than a chef’s pay in an average curry house. Also, staff cannot be gotten in the UK because people are not interested. At this rate, he complained that there might likely be no Indian restaurant in the UK.
