Supermarket figures concerned as no-deal Brexit will inevitably hit supplies

A No-deal Brexit would “inevitably disrupt” fresh food supplies in Britain as delays at ports would throw time-deliveries into chaos, a chief executive of the supermarket group Sainsbury expressed.

Mike Coupe said the October 31st Brexit date could not have come at a worse time for supermarkets as warehouses were already full with produce for Christmas.

Other supermarkets bosses said that Britain was unlikely to run out of essentials like toilet paper in the event of a no-deal Brexit. While this is the case, some fresh fruit and vegetables could be in short supply and prices may rise.

Senior retail figures have also showed the government’s demand for supermarkets to prepare for a No-deal Brexit by stockpiling food was angering the industry. The bosses expressed that they shouldn’t be blamed if their shelves were not full.
