The United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020.

As experienced importers and exporters of fresh produce, we have taken every imaginable precaution to ensure that our supply chain will remain unaffected by the UK leaving the EU.

At this stage the impact of Brexit is completely unknown but as a company we have taken a proactive approach to change in policy, staff, law and process since the announcement in June 2016.

We have gone above and beyond all proposed measures from the UK government to make sure that our customers will still receive our quality produce on time and as per our Service Level Agreements.

As seasoned professionals we have arrangements in place with the largest freight forwarders and remain vigilant to any proposed logistical changes.

We are already registered for Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP) to import goods in the event of a no-deal Brexit, as well as having an Economic Operators Registration and Identification number (EORI number).

We have adapted our supply chain so that product’s arriving from outside of the EU to a destination within the EU can be transported directly.  Clearance will be managed within the country of destination.

With our European hub in Rotterdam and the truly global nature of our organisation, we are well positioned to deal with any Brexit eventuality.
