Good morning,

FDF has issued the following press notice:

In response to the publication of the Government's Yellowhammer Report, Food and Drink Federation Chief Executive Ian Wright CBE said:

“It is as the Food and Drink Federation have been saying for the best part of two years now - it lays bare the grisly crisis facing the UK's food and drink supply chain in a no-deal Brexit scenario.

“And shoppers have rightly come to expect a wide range of products on supermarket shelves. In a no- deal Brexit scenario there would be significant and adverse changes to product availability, and random shortages.”

“Government must be upfront about the chaos a no-deal Brexit would bring.”
