What a year has 2020 been? With the onset of Covid-19 in March to still a great deal of uncertainty caused by Brexit, we are all getting ready to say goodbye to the most challenging year in our lifetime.
The Supermarkets and wholesalers are warning shoppers of shortages of lettuce, broccoli, and citrus fruit around Christmas after France banned haulers carrying freight across the Channel in an effort to contain the spread of a new coronavirus strain. Retailers said the ingredients for a traditional Christmas lunch, such as turkey, carrots, peas, potatoes, parsnips, and brussels sprouts were mostly produced in the UK and available to buy, but some shelves could soon be empty of some fresh produce imported from Europe. This means preparation is the key, don’t leave things to the last minute, act immediately, or suffer the consequences.
Regardless of deal or no deal on Brexit at the last minute, unfortunately, supply chains will not be the same again in the short term. Those of us that are reliant on overseas produce, order early, expect an increase in prices and further delays at the borders. If you are unsure of any aspects of supply chain documentation or need some reassurance, contact us at AMCI Associates Ltd.
