Cornish businesses are supporting a project to shape the future of regulation in the Duchy, by appearing in a series of videos commissioned by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The six videos, which were filmed in businesses around Cornwall, are being released over the coming weeks on the Business Pulse website.
The films show how companies, including clotted cream producer Rodda’s, construction consultancy Ward Williams Associates and Wadebridge eatery Little Plates, work with their local regulators. The videos were commissioned to support Better Business for All, an initiative between businesses and regulatory services at Cornwall Council.
The series launches with a film featuring Rodda’s export executive, Julian Hughes, explaining how the company ships its clotted cream products around the world.
Better Business for All aims to take a business-led approach to improving regulation and show how working with regulators can save businesses time and money, improve competitiveness and help them grow.
The LEP hopes it will encourage more businesses in Cornwall to seek advice from regulators without fear of enforcement activity.
LEP board director, Simon Tregoning, said: “Reducing the regulatory burden on business is a priority for the LEP. Better Business for All is about business-led improvements to create a regulatory environment that promotes business success and provides public protection.
“I would like to thank all the businesses who are supporting our project by taking part in these videos. The films show how a good relationship between a business and regulators can save time and money and help a business to grow.”
The films were made by Cornish media production company, KernowPods.
