A Note About Brexit

The UK is no longer a member of the EU, and has entered a transitional period and trade negotiations ongoing.

The UK will remain in the EU’s customs union and single market for the duration of the implementation period and all EU rules and regulations will still apply. Effectively, nothing will change until 31st December 2020.

We are working with our suppliers to minimise the impact of Brexit on our customers. There is still a lot of uncertainty on what changes will happen from 1st January 2021, but we will post updated information here when it becomes available.

The Government has produced a helpful guidance page summarising what you need to do to prepare your food and drink business for 1 January 2021


Brexit FAQs

The impact of a no deal Brexit with regards to tariffs, customs duties and excise is not entirely clear, is quickly evolving and the advice available from UK government is open to interpretation. We can therefore only share the resources currently available to us and cannot vouch that our interpretation is correct or that the situation will not change.

Please see below link to guidance we have been referring to regarding likely treatment of imports in a no deal situation.
